Chris Davis Snaps Hitless Streak With Two-Run Single Against Red Sox

The lefty slugger finished last season with a.168 batting average, the worst among qualified hitters in major league history.

For Davis, it was the slugger's first home run since August 24.

Davis had gone hitless a record 54 straight at-bats, starting this season 0 for 33 before he lined a 1-0 pitch from Rick Porcello to push the Orioles ahead 2-0. But the Orioles faithful jumped to their feet when Davis cracked a line drive to right-center with two outs and the bases loaded, driving in two runners. Against the Red Sox, no less. Davis hit that home run off his former teammate Zack Britton.

The hitless streak is finally over!

Not only was it a hit, it was a two-run single!

We'll see if this hit will be the at-bat that puts momentum in Davis' favor. Davis drove in four runs, and was instrumental in Baltimore's 9-5 win.

Chris Davis' deep freeze is over now, too. The previous mark was set by Eugenio Velez who went 46 consecutive at-bats without a base hit stretching over the 2010 and 2011 seasons. It's not much, but it's a start. The Orioles may have won Monday's game, but no one expects the team to be good in 2019. If nothing else, he gives casual fans a reason to care about the Orioles, and that's not an easy task.
