Nick isn't hitting a lick
Nick Markakis has been automatic lately, and not in a good way. He just flied out to left field with runners at second and third in the bottom of the fourth inning to come up empty for the second time tonight with runners in scoring position. In his second at-bat, he popped up with a runner at third in the second inning.
The scary numbers: Nick has not had a run or an RBI in his last 10 games and has not had a home run in his last 18 games (not including Thursday night).
The entire O's offense has treated former teammate Garrett Olson respectfully. They've gotten eight runners on base in the first four innings and have managed to get just two of them all the way around.
