Manny Machado thought he had a home run Friday night in the bottom of the sixth inning.
He hit an absolute laser beam that appeared to have a chance. Not surprisingly, he didn’t hustle, opting instead to saunter down the line admiring his hit.
Then it hit the wall, and Machado was held to a single.
Just as unsurprising as his lack of effort was, the reactions on Twitter were predictable as well.
06010: “Nothing good comes from hustling.”
Manny Machado: “Allow me to put that to the test.”

If you're not going to hustle in the World Series when the hell will you? Good god, Manny.
