Manny Machado made the amazing look easy, once again.

The Padres' prize offseason acquisition made a diving stop on a Kevin Newman ground ball up the middle in the top of the third in Thursday night's 4-3 win over the Pirates, and then, with no time to get to his feet -- or even set his gaze on first baseman Eric Hosmer's mitt -- rolled over and made a strong throw to first base for the first out of the inning.
