Nick Markakis blasts seventh tater in loss to Rays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Orioles hitting machine Nick Markakis did his part in a comeback attempt that fell short Saturday against Tampa Bay.

Markakis added two more hits to a total that has reached 99 on the season. He slugged a home run in the sixth inning and singled in the eighth. He has seven hits in his last four games.


Nick Markakis racking up multi-hit games


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) The 2014 hitting machine better known as Nick Markakis has been ramping up the multi-hit games recently. The Orioles right fielder has four two-hit games in his last nine and leads the American League in that department. He is on pace to exceed 200 hits for the first time in his career.

Markakis has thrived in the leadoff spot and owns a .301 average, which if maintained would be his best since 2008. But, oddly, he is on pace to score significantly fewer runs than he did in 2013 despite a stat line with improved numbers across the board.


Nick Markakis goes deep in win over Red Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis homered and enjoyed a multi-hit performance during Monday's 4-0 win over the Red Sox.

Markakis took starter Jake Peavy deep for a two-run home run in the fifth inning. He added a single and finished 2 for 4 with a run scored and two RBI. He is hitting .312 with six homers and 26 RBI in 260 at-bats.

Markakis led off the third inning against Nick Martinez. On the first pitch of the at-bat, he hit a 90 mph fastball out to right field for the solo shot. He later walked and singled during the game, reaching base three times. Markakis is hitting .308/.366/.413 over 240 at-bats.


Nick Markakis able to play through stiff neck


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis nearly missed Saturday's game due to a stiff neck, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Markakis said his neck loosened up during batting practice, which allowed him to play. The injury doesn't seem too serious, and Markakis should continue to play through it unless he has a setback. Markakis is hitting .300/.353/.396 in 227 at-bats.


Nick Markakis manages first four-hit game in nearly a year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis slapped three opposite-field singles and a double Friday night to help his team defeat Cleveland. It marked his first four-hit game since June 16, but he did not drive in a run and only scored once.

Markakis has 10 hits in his last 24 at-bats to raise his average to .306. He has scored just 18 runs in 193 at-bats, however.


Nick Markakis five short of career-long hitting streak


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis is approaching his career-long hitting streak of 19, which he achieved in June 2011.

Markakis owns a 14-game hitting streak, during which he has raised his average from .276 to .305. But the torrid run is merely an extension of a roll that began in early April. Markakis has just two hitless games since April 5.

But despite the tear, he is on pace for the same limited production that has plagued him throughout his career. He is on pace to score 80 runs and drive in 60.


Nick Markakis hits first one out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2014) Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis found his power swing Thursday, as he clubbed his first home run of the season in a 5-1 win over the Pirates.

Markakis extended his hitting streak to eight games with his seventh-inning home run, his first of the season. He ultimately went 1 for 3 in the game, with his lone hit coming on that solo homer. He added a walk as well, his sixth during the course of his hitting streak.

Markakis is hitting .301 on the season, but the power hasn't quite been there so far. He has six extra-base hits among his 31 total hits, while driving in nine and scoring 13 runs in 26 games. 


Nick Markakis plays first base, knocks walkoff single Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2014) Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis drew the rare start at first base Saturday, going 2 for 5 with two RBI, including driving in the game-winning run with a walkoff single in the 10th inning of his team's 3-2 win over the Royals.

Markakis hadn't seen time at first base since playing there 18 innings over three games during the 2011 season. He began the scoring with a first-inning single and ended the night with the same. Markakis has hit .299/.355/.361 in 97 at-bats.

The Orioles got most of their runs during a six-run third inning. Nick Markakis, Nelson Cruz, Chris Davis and Jonathan Schoop all had RBI singles. Adam Jones got an RBI on a fielder's choice and Steve Clevenger had an RBI double.

The Orioles' other run came in the eighth inning on Ryan Flaherty's RBI single. The Orioles hit .303 (10 for 33) and had four walks during the win.

Nick Markakis set to hit leadoff?


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

"You can see the way he's moving around compared to the last couple springs when he was trying to not go too fast to make sure he's ready for opening day," Showalter said. "I think Nick is going to have a really good year."

Markakis is also a candidate to hit leadoff for the club. Markakis was used in the role 34 times last season. Markakis hit .271/.329/.356 in 634 at-bats.


Nick Markakis 'confident' heading into 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis said his approach hasn't changed as he enters the final guaranteed year of his contract, according to CSNBaltimore.com. The Orioles hold a $17.5 million team option for 2015.

“No, not at all. Same mindset, same approach," he said. "Try to be the same player that I always am, going out there every day and the main thing is to stay healthy and go out there and play 160-plus games."

Markakis had a down year offensively in 2013, despite staying off the disabled list and appearing in 160 games. Though, some blamed his struggles on the health issues he had in 2012 and not being able to follow a normal training routine.

Markakis doesn't deny it was a challenge to get back into shape.

"It’s a lot better than it has been the last two seasons. I’ve been battling injuries. Those are things you can’t avoid. I had three surgeries in nine months. There’s a lot that I was limited to do in those nine months to get back in shape," Markakis said. "I like where I’m at right now. I’m confident. I’m comfortable and ready for it to start."


'Staying healthy' will be key for Nick Markakis in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis is coming off a season in which he posted career lows in batting average (.271), on-base percentage (.329), slugging percentage (.356) and OPS (.685). Markakis also had career lows in home runs (10) and doubles (24).

While Markakis made no excuses for his down year in 2013, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said at the winter meetings that "staying healthy" will be key for Markakis having a bounce-back season in 2014, according to MASNsports.com.

"Nick is not one of those guys that broadcasts, as my mom used to say, he enjoys ill health," Showalter said. "You get some people once you know everything is wrong with them, Nick is not one of those guys. Probably half the things we don't even know. Somebody told me the other day that he's about as good as he's felt and looked in a long time. We'll see. I think most of it is going to be health."
