Chris Davis is not in the Orioles' starting lineup on Monday night against the White Sox.

Chris Davis hit a grand slam in the third inning and the Orioles never trailed in their 7-5 win over the Rays on Tuesday.

The slam, his 12th home run of the year, was Davis' only hit in four at-bats in the game. He's now homered in three of his last six games, collecting eight RBI in that span. It's largely been a struggle for Davis this year, though, as he owns a pedestrian .225/.338/.445 in the wake of his breakout 2013 campaign.
