Infield

The Orioles got quite a scare when Chris Davis jammed his knee during Friday night's game, but he came back to deliver a big hit Sunday. J.J. Hardy (pictured) turned on the power at the end of the week to give the club a big boost. And Ryan Flaherty even chipped in with a two-run single Sunday to take some pressure off the bullpen in the eighth inning. But, let's face it, all eyes right now are on 20-year-old Manny Machado, who has proven to be more than ready for prime time. He went 10-for-30 for the week with three home runs and five RBIs and returned to Baltimore batting a heady .309 through his first 148 plate appearances. Overall, infielders batted a combined .255 with five homers and 14 RBIs, while not being charged with a single error in seven games. Grade: B+ Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports
