WATCH: Manny Machado crushes 2-run HR against Braves

By Jesse Reed

The Los Angeles Dodgers brought Manny Machado on board this year to make a difference in their postseason efforts, and on Friday night he did just that.

During the first inning against the Atlanta Braves, Machado put the Dodgers up 2-0 with a moon shot to left field.

It’s worth pointing out that Machado historically has owned Anibal Sanchez. He’s now 8 for 16 with 4 homers against him in his career.
