Manny Machado went 5-for-6 with a double, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored during the Orioles' 8-2 win over the Nationals on Monday.
Just before serving his five game suspension, Machado had two-straight games with a home run and since he's returned, he's got three-straight multi-hit games with another homer here on Monday. For those who can't keep up, that's now a five game hit-streak in which he is batting .440 (11-for-25) with three home runs, six RBI and five runs scored. He may still be battling maturity issues, but at least he's hitting the ball while he's learning.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tom Brady completed 23-of-42 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots 30-24 OT loss to the Broncos on Sunday.
Brady turned in one of his better games of the season and Sunday and while he's certainly had better numbers in previous games it is hard to ignore the lack of weapons on the offensive side of the ball that he had at his disposal with injuries to Dion Lewis, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola over the last three weeks. Brady tossed three more touchdown passes on Sunday night, connecting with Rob Gronkowski, Scott Chandler and Brandon Bolden for the scores. Late in the fourth quarter the Patriots passing attack suffered another tremendous blow as Rob Gronkowski was carted off with a knee injury which at the time appeared to be severe and yet Brady still managed to drive the Patriots down the field for a game tying field goal try to send the contest into OT. If Gronk is forced to miss any extended amount of time the fantasy impact for Brady will take another big blow as the available offensive weapons will be reduced to the very bottom of the depth chart.
