"I think we all would have won that bet [that he would hit a second homer] if we thought he was going to hit one. He almost hit three, " manager Buck Showalter said of Young, who sent a ball to the warning track off Rays reliever Steve Geltz in the bottom of the seventh. "The last few days the ball is just flying out of here. But he got all of the first one. It's good to see. With [Adam] Jonesy being out we need somebody to step up a little bit and he did."
Machado turned in his second multi-homer game of the season -- the fourth of his career -- hitting a two-run homer in the seventh to chase Odorizzi from the game and a leadoff blast in the ninth off Xavier Cedeno. His second home run was confirmed by a crew-chief review.
"It's always a good day when you go out there and score some runs and swing the bats well," said Machado, who went 3-for-5 with three RBIs. "Hitting, we're not getting people over. We've got to do a little better job. We're getting there little by little."
