Postgame in the Orioles clubhouse, Manny Machado answered questions with a Manny garden gnome (a July giveaway) standing guard in the top cubby of his locker. When asked about how his gnome compares to the Buck Showalter gnome, Machado - who was all smiles after homering in the O's 6-3 win - has this to say: "I think mine's better. I think I'm better looking."

Manny Machado on what it was like coming back from his four-game suspension: "It felt good. I wasn't sitting at home and just drinking some beer and not doing anything. I was in here working, working out in the cage, doing what I needed to do to stay fresh. I knew it wasn't a vacation at the end of the day. I had to come in here and help this team in whatever way I can."

A refreshed Manny Machado - who hadn't played since Saturday thanks to a four-game suspension - helped the Orioles to a 6-3 win in the series opener against Tampa Bay. Machado went 2-for-4 with with a homer. It was his 18th bomb of the season, tied for sixth most in the AL.

An electric sellout crowd at Camden Yards (the 2nd of the season) just got vertical when Manny Machado crushed an opposite field solo shot to extend the Orioles' lead to 6-3 in the eighth. In his first game back from suspension, Machado is 2-for-4.

June has been good to Adam Jones. The Orioles outfielder just went deep off Matt Moore for his ninth bomb of the month. Only San Diego's Will Myers has more June jacks. Jones' dinger cuts the Rays lead to 3-2 in the sixth.

In his first AB back from suspension, Manny Machado got a robust round of applause from Orioles fans. Then he promptly proceeded to hit the ball over the left centerfield wall. Unfortunately for him, centerfielder Desmond Jennings brought it back in.

The real Mark Trumbo (third from left, wearing black #Orioles pullover) looks on as 24 fake Mark Trumbos work out before tonight's O's/Rays opener. In honor of the Baltimore slugger, who's currently tied for the major-league lead in homers, all of his teammates - who got their schwag a little early in advance of this Sunday's Trumbo Tee Shirt day - rocked the giveaway during batting practice. Whether or not Trumbo was wearing his tee under the pullover remains a mystery.

Manny Machado returns to the field today for the Orioles following a four-game suspension for charging the mound after being hit by a 99 mile-an-hour fastball from Yordano Ventura. Asked whether he would respond differently if presented with the same situation, Machado said: "Would I take it back? No. I did what I need to do to be who I am."

O's are off to fast start at home

Against San Diego on Wednesday, Baltimore improved to 27-13 at home, the team's most wins through 40 home games since 1979 (31-9 record), per the Elias Sports Bureau. The '79 Orioles finished the year 55-24 at home, the best such record in the majors.

The Orioles got a much-needed quality start from Ubaldo Jimenez (UNDERSTATEMENT ALERT!!!), who allowed two runs in six innings while fanning seven, plus a solo homer from Mark Trumbo (his 21st, tied for most in AL) en route to a 7-2 win over San Diego. The victory ups the O's lead in the AL East to 1.5 games over Boston, which leads the White Sox late.

In his previous appearance, Ubaldo Jimenez got booed by Orioles fans. Repeatedly. Tonight, he gets a standing O after lasting six innings, allowing two runs and striking out seven. Just his second quality start of the season, the outing seems to have given folks hope that maybe - just maybe - Jimenez still has something to offer an O's rotation that's in dire need of help.

Baltimore may have a problem

It turns out much of the O's roster is only under control for a couple more seasons. Sure, you could say that many teams will have big change in the next seasons. The issue for Baltimore is the entire core of the current team will not be guaranteed in just three seasons. Camden Depot

Mark Trumbo just went yard to right center off Padres starter Erik Johnson. That gives the Orioles slugger 21 bombs on the season, most in the AL and tied for the major-league lead with Nolan Arenado. Trumbo is now one homer shy of his total from last season.

Just because Manny Machado is suspended doesn't mean he's not working. Before BP, the Orioles' slugger took extra grounders at third base, where he should start when he returns on Friday. In three games without Machado, the O's are 1-2.
