The quiet veteran put on a full display Friday night of the kind of star power that has had manager Buck Showalter reminding reporters all season that, official or not, Marakakis has been an All-Star.

The 29-year-old robbed Adrian Beltre of a fourth-inning home run with a leaping catch at the right-field fence and doubled in a run to back another quality effort from lefty Wei-Yin Chen, as the Orioles topped the Rangers, 3-1.

The victory, in front of 40,068 at Rangers Ballpark, starts the O’s second half off in style, as Baltimore made good use of several sloppy Texas plays to keep pace in the AL East.
