    Braves' Markakis hits walkoff HR after opting into season

    Markakis capped his dramatic return with a game-ending home run in the ninth inning that lifted the Atlanta Braves to a 4-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. It was the first hit of the game for Markakis, who said he was upset about failing in previous attempts to drive in a run. To me, we really shouldn’t have been in that situation,” said the 36-year-old Markakis.

    Apparent roster snafu changes Blue Jays pitching plans

    An apparent roster snafu forced the Toronto Blue Jays to change their pitching plans for Thursday night’s game at the Atlanta Braves. After Nate Pearson gave up three runs in five innings, manager Charlie Montoyo brought in right-hander Jacob Waguespack to open the sixth. As Waguespack walked to the mound, he was greeted by home plate umpire Alan Porter, who apparently delivered some bad news: The right-hander wasn’t on the 28-man active roster for the game.

    Markakis walks off Blue Jays, gives Braves a series win over Toronto

    The Braves won in walk-off fashion against the Blue Jays as Nick Markakis blasted a home run into the empty right field seats, putting an emphatic stamp on a 4-3 victory. Markakis made his first start of the season, batting fifth, and made the most of his triumphant return. The club may not be at full strength, but quickly reaped the benefit of having another veteran left-handed bat in the lineup.
