Chris Davis 1B/3B BAL 24 Days

Davis hit his 19th home run of the season Wednesday en route to finishing 1-for-3 against the Blue Jays.

The hit and the run would be all that the Orioles would muster against Drew Hutchison. He's now homered in consecutive games, the first time he's done so all year, and the RBI increased his season total to 54. Unfortunately, Davis is still batting just .197, which is dead-last among qualified hitters in all of MLB.

Davis was dropped to seventh in the order Tuesday, where he went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer against the Blue Jays.

Davis also struck out twice. Therein lies the problem. Davis is on pace for 189 strikeouts in 136 games and 480 at-bats this season. Without a trip to the disabled list he might have challenged the single-season record of 223 strikeouts owned by Mark Reynolds. The Orioles seem to have lost confidence in Davis, even sitting him against a left-hander recently.

Chris Davis homered in the top of the 10th inning to break a 1-1 tie and lead the Orioles past the Mariners 2-1 on Friday.

Davis hasn't had a whole lot of reason to celebrate this year, but he came through in a big spot tonight. It was his 17th homer in 310 at-bats this year, which is still a pretty good clip, even if it's well off last year's pace. The problem is that he has just 36 singles and 10 doubles on the year, leaving him with a .203 average.

Davis connected on an opposite field two-run blast off Chase Whitley in the fourth inning, getting the O's on the board and proving to provide the margin of victory. He finished the night 1-for-2, finishing the first half of the season with a disappointing .199/.309/.391 line to go along with 15 long balls and 48 RBI.

Chris Davis' struggles at the plate continued in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox in the first game of their doubleheader, as he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

The free-swinging slugger is now hitting an abysmal .204/.321/.392 with just 13 homers and 42 RBI. While he couldn't be counted on to repeat his MVP-caliber 2013 season, he has been one of the biggest disappointments in the league this year.
