Markakis returns to Orioles lineup

Nick Markakis is back in right field tonight for the Orioles after the birth of his third son, Toby, yesterday afternoon.

Markakis was used as a pinch-hitter last night.

Wilson Betemit is serving as the designated hitter. He’s hitless in nine at-bats since coming off the disabled list.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes. Much appreciated.

If I don’t update the blog as much as usual tonight, it’s only because I’m immersed in Season One of “Murder She Wrote.” And I’m blaming every typo and mistake on a “senior moment.”

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to chase some kids off my lawn.
