Another Day, Another Chris Davis Home Run


Believe it or not, he’s done it again.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis smacked yet another home run – this time of the grand slam variety – and drove in five runs en route to Baltimore’s 9-5 pasting of the Minnesota Twins on Friday.

Davis has now homered in each of the Orioles’ first four games, becoming just the fourth player in major league history to do so (along with Willie Mays, Mark McGwire and Nelson Cruz). He is 9 for 16 on the season (.600 BA) with 16 RBIs, notching at least 3 RBIs in each of his team’s first four games to open the season – a big-league record.

You can watch Davis’ grand slam here.

Davis has also homered in 10 of his last 11 at bats dating back to last season. The streak has made Baltimore games must-see TV.

With one more home run today, Davis would stand alone as the only player in baseball history to homer in each of his team’s first five games. The Orioles take on the Twins again at 7 p.m. Right hander Vance Worley gets the start for Minnesota.
