BALTIMORE (AP) Returning to Camden Yards far richer than when he left and sporting the dark blue colors of the San Diego Padres, Manny Machado looked back fondly about his time with the Orioles and acknowledged that he was nervous about facing his former team.

Machado had played in 1,025 baseball games before Tuesday night, including five last year against Boston in the World Series. So why the angst before a late June matchup?

"I'm never nervous, but it's like a weird nervous, in a way," Machado said, sitting in a room about 100 yards away from the field he called home for seven years. "It was just all different today."
