Nick Markakis is one of the few Orioles with a history against Anibal Sanchez in tonight’s Interleague game. Markakis batted against Sanchez when he was with the Frederick Keys and Sanchez took the mound for the Wilmington Blue Rocks. The short history didn’t pay off thanks to a nice stab by Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla going to his right. O’s go three up-three down.
It wasn’t a total loss for Markakis in his first AB of the night. After having never faced a pitcher with the last name Sanchez during his major league career coming into the 2010 season, he’s now done so twice in the past week. Markakis went 0-for-3 with a walk against the Giants’ Jonathan Sanchez last week. And that, my friends, may be the most random fact you read all night.
