Nick Markakis delivers walk-off hit for Baltimore Orioles (Video)


The Baltimore Orioles have a 12-11 record so far this season. That puts them just 1.5 games back of the first place New York Yankees in the congested American League East. Their most recent victory came thanks to a nice piece of hitting by veteran outfielder Nick Markakis.

With the game tied 2-2 against the Kansas City Royals and the bases loaded, Markakis delivered an opposite field walk-off single to give the Orioles the 3-2 victory.

Markakis has been his usual steady self of the Orioles this season, batting .299/.355/.361 through 23 games. He might not overwhelm you with this statistics, but as he showed on Saturday, he will give you a good at-bat when you need it in a key spot.
