Nick Markakis was the hero on Saturday night against the Royals. The Orioles right fielder (/first baseman) hit an opposite field single that drove in Jonathan Schoop as the winning run in the bottom of the tenth against the Royals.
It’s tradition that walkoff winners are treated with pies to the face, but not the veteran Markakis. Instead, J.J. Hardy hand delivered Markakis a fork with his pie.
Respect for the vet: Markakis, the walk-off hero, gets a spoonful of pie instead of a face-full of pie! #masnOrioles pic.twitter.com/OwKMc1dvX8
