Manny Machado admitted he was nervous for Tuesday’s game.

The Padres infielder returned to Camden Yards for the first time since being traded last July.

“I’m a little more nervous today to come there,” Machado said, via ESPN. “I’m never nervous. I guess it’s like a weird nervous, in a way. It’s just different.”

Machado seemed to shake off the nerves almost immediately with a home run in the third inning. It was his 100th career home run at the Orioles’ stadium.

The Padres went on to beat Baltimore, 8-3.

Machado, who was selected third overall in the 2010 MLB Draft by the Orioles, finished the night 2 for 4 with two RBIs.

Baltimore sent Machado to the Dodgers before the 2018 trade deadline. He then signed a 10-year, $300 million contract with San Diego in the offseason.

Studs of the Night

DJ LeMahieu hit a lead-off homer to push the Yankees’ home run streak to 28 consecutive games, setting an MLB record.

Rangers starter Jesse Chavez threw 6 1/3 innings, allowing five hits and striking out seven in his team’s 5-3 win over the Tigers.

Dud of the Night

Trevor Richards allowed seven hits and six earned runs in five innings of work as the Marlins fell to the Nationals, 6-1.

Highlights

This is one way to take the lead. Hunter Dozier hit a go-ahead grand slam against the Indians.

There was no denying Tommy La Stella this inside-the-park home run.

Willians Astudillo with a great catch.

What’s Next?

Braves (47-33) at Cubs (43-36), 8:05 p.m. ET – Atlanta rebounded from a series-opening loss to Chicago with a win Tuesday. Now, the NL East-leading Braves will try to keep up their winning ways with Dallas Keuchel (0-1, 5.40 ERA) starting against Chicago’s Yu Darvish (2-3, 4.75 ERA).
