The home run was his ninth of the year, and Markakis is quietly hitting .286/.349/.397 at the top of the Orioles lineup this year.

Nick Markakis went 2-for-3 with a homer and two walks in the Orioles' 6-5 defeat of the Rangers on Wednesday.

Markakis has hit in nine straight games, scoring runs in seven of them. It doesn't look like he'll ever again be a 20-homer threat, but he's batting .300, he's getting a ton of at-bats at the top of the Orioles lineup and he's attempting some steals again after being a non-factor there the last two years, making him a fair fourth or fifth outfielder in mixed leagues.

All three hits were singles, boosting the average up to .302. While the high average is nice, the Orioles would also like to see a little more power out of their corner outfielder, as Markakis is currently sitting on a meager .389 slugging percentage. He put up a career-worst .356 SLG last season.
May 15 - 11:18 PM

Nick Markakis went 2-for-5 with a solo home run as the Orioles defeated the Pirates in 10 innings on Thursday.

Markakis now has back-to-back multi-hit games, pulling his batting average up to .273 for the year. He has only drawn two walks through 15 games, which isn't ideal as a leadoff man. But history suggests that he should get his fair share of free passes as the season moves along.
