Braves' Markakis misses game because of family emergency

NEW YORK (AP) Braves right fielder Nick Markakis has left the team because of a family emergency, manager Fredi Gonzalez said before Wednesday afternoon's game against the Mets.

Gonzalez said Markakis called him Wednesday morning to say he needed to head home to Maryland. The veteran is expected to be back in time for Friday's home game against Arizona. Atlanta is off Thursday.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with him," Gonzalez said. "Hope everything comes out OK."
