According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Manny Machado is the only Orioles player in history to hit multiple walk-off home runs in the 12th inning or later. He also did it in the 12th inning last year against the Angels.

Machado’s 25 home runs are the most by an Orioles third baseman since Melvin Mora hit 27 in 2005.
