BALTIMORE -- Orioles third baseman Manny Machado sprained his right knee taking a swing Monday night against the New York Yankees and needed help to get off the field.

Batting in the third inning, Machado twisted his knee while hitting a broken-bat grounder to shortstop. He dropped in a heap in the batter's box and gripped his knee in obvious pain as Derek Jeter made the throw to first base.

After a check by head trainer Richie Bancells, Machado limped off the field on the shoulders of Bancells and Baltimore manager Buck Showalter.

An examination determined the injury to be a right knee sprain. The Orioles said Machado would be examined again on Tuesday.

Earlier in the game, Machado doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly. Chris Davis took Machado's place in the lineup and hit a two-run homer in the fifth.

Machado missed the first month of the season while recovering from surgery on his left knee.
