Orioles rookie third baseman Manny Machado hit his third homer in his fourth big league game Sunday. 

Machado, who hit two homers in his second game Friday, took a 2-2 high sinker from Royals starter Bruce Chen over the right-center field fence to give the Orioles an early 2-0 lead in the second inning.

Machado's homer was originally ruled a ground-rule double, but the umpires found that the ball hit off the back of the right-center field fence and over and ruled it a home run.

The 20-year-old rookie is now 6-for-13 with five extra-base hits (three homers, one triple, one double).
