- Nick Markakis' catch to rob a home run in Monday's 8-2 win over the Chicago White Sox received some national attention. While Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Markakis deserves that recognition, the right fielder often shuns it.
- The Orioles now have their best single-season road winning percentage since 1997, going 37-26 with a .587 winning percentage away from Camden Yards so far this season. They posted a .642 winning percentage in 1997, finishing with a 52-29 record on the road.
- A lot of the advanced defensive metrics don¿t reward Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis for the defender he is. And the steadiness he plays the outfield sometimes make you take him for granted, especially given the way he expertly maneuvers around a tricky right field corner at Camden Yards over the years.
- Right fielder Nick Markakis took away a go-ahead home run in the seventh inning, and the Orioles opened up a close game with five runs in the eighth for an 8-2 win over the Chicago White Sox.

- Often in the past 15 years, the Orioles have used September as a proving ground for the following season, experimenting with what they had in order to get a better idea of what they needed to fortify in the winter. That won't be the case with the team in the playoff chase in 2013.
- Chris Davis drove in three of the Orioles' four runs as they beat the Chicago White Sox in Scott Feldman's first start in a Baltimore uniform.
- Jason Hammel unraveled in the late innings as the Orioles dropped a 5-2 decision to the Chicago White Sox to snap their four-game winning streak.
