Nick Markakis had a 3-for-5 night with an RBI as the Braves took down the Rockies on Monday.

Markakis added some insurance with an RBI double in the sixth. He's on a modest six-game hitting streak and has doubled in four of those games. It's about as much power as the Braves can expect from him, as he's batting .299/.367/.378 with two home runs and 47 RBI.

Nick Markakis went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in a losing effort against the Cubs on Friday.

Markakis broke a 1-1 tie with a two-run double off Kyle Hendricks in the fourth inning, but that would wind up being the extent of the Braves offense in the ballgame. He's had a nice season offensively in his first year with the Braves, slashing .298/.368/.376 with a pair of homers and 46 RBI.

Nick Markakis went 3-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs, leading the Braves to a 6-3 victory over the Marlins on Friday.

His two-run single in the seventh inning broke a 3-3 tie and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He's enjoying a very nice season in his first year with the Braves, slashing .299/.373/.378 with 41 RBI.

Nick Markakis went 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and two runs scored Tuesday against the Dodgers.

The game was the second in a row that Markakis had two hits and scored two runs, giving him 42 runs scored to go with a .292/.377/.368 line. The lack of power takes away some of Markakis' appeal, but he's been largely what the Braves thought they were getting when they signed him to a four-year deal this past offseason.

Nick Markakis finally got on the board with his first home run of the season, also doubling and walking in a 2-3 effort in Monday's win over the Dodgers.

Markakis clubbed a home run to center field off of former Brave Brandon Beachy ending 393 homerless plate appearances this season. Though power deficient, the veteran outfielder has otherwise had a productive year at the dish, batting .289/.375/.361 with 31 RBI and 40 runs scored.

Nick Markakis had an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

Markakis' RBI single in the fifth inning broke a scoreless tie and wound up being the winning run in the low-scoring affair. He finished 1-for-3 with a walk on the afternoon. With Freddie Freeman sidelined, Markakis has become one of the Braves' lone sources of offense, and the 31-year-old is hitting .300/.387/.355 with 23 RBI and 32 runs scored this year.

Nick Markakis went 3-for-5 and scored the Braves' only run as they lost in 11 innings to the Nationals on Wednesday.

With the Braves trailing 1-0, Markakis led off the ninth inning with a single. He advanced to third base on another single and came around to score the tying run on Kelly Johnson's sacrifice fly. Markakis has hit in the middle of the Braves' lineup for more than a month now and hasn't hit for much power, but has otherwise done a good job at the plate. On the season, he's batting .305/.394/.364 with zero home runs, 21 RBI, and 32 runs scored.

Nick Markakis set a major league record by playing in his 393rd consecutive errorless game in the outfield Thursday.

We certainly aren't ones to make much of errorless streaks, which are largely bogus, but Markakis certainly deserves some credit for his sure-handedness. The streak dates all of the way back to 2012.

Nick Markakis enjoyed a three-hit night against the Padres on Tuesday, finishing 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored.

Markakis actually did the most damage in the one at-bat in which he didn't get a hit, as he collected an RBI on a groundout and reached on a fielding error in the Braves' five-run sixth inning. The multi-hit game raised his season line to .303/.390/.372 in his first season in Atlanta.
Jun 10 - 12:24 AM

Nick Markakis went 3-for-4 with a double, but the Braves were shut out in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

The double was the outfielder's ninth of the season. He's up to 52 hits on the season, but 43 of them have been singles. Markakis has reached double-digits in home runs in nine previous seasons but he'll have to catch fire at some point to get there by season's end. The 31-year-old is hitting an otherwise productive .311/.398/.365.

Nick Markakis is hitting leadoff for the Braves on Saturday.

With Eric Young Jr. struggling, the Braves are looking for a spark atop their lineup. Markakis had success in that same role with the Orioles, and his fantasy value sees a nice boost with the premium spot in the lineup.
Apr 25 - 3:47 PM

Nick Markakis is not in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

It appears to just be a day of rest. Kelly Johnson is handling right field in Markakis' place. The Braves are going with Cameron Maybin in center field Wednesday.

Nick Markakis went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and an RBI single, which proved to be the deciding factor in Monday's victory against the Marlins.

Alberto Callaspo and Markakis hit back-to-back RBI singles off of reliever Sam Dyson in the fifth inning. As the Braves won by one run, it was the Markakis single that made the difference. He's still looking for his first extra-base hit this season and is batting a mediocre .231 (6-for-26).
