Nick Markakis, 2009 Upper Deck Goudey #18

Sound the air raid sirens! Mere days after I mused upon Nick Markakis' home run drought, he finally touched 'em all tonight against Dodgers pitcher Brandon Beachy. His first-inning, two-run shot went out to straightaway center field in Atlanta, clearing the fence at the 400-foot mark. It was Nick's 394th plate appearance for the Braves. His first homer as an Oriole came a bit quicker, as he went deep off of Tampa Bay reliever Dan Miceli in his sixth and final plate appearance in his first start for the club. But who's counting?
