Chris Davis blasted a two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Orioles to a 3-1 victory over the Yankees in a rain-shortened five-inning game.

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.

Jul 6 - 11:22 AM

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.

Chris Davis will start at first base Tuesday against the Rangers.

With Manny Machado suspended, Davis made his first start at third base since the 2011 season on Monday, but he's back across the diamond on Tuesday. Ryan Flaherty will make the start at the hot corner this time.
Jul 1 - 3:12 PM

Chris Davis is starting at third base for the Orioles on Monday night against the Rangers.

It's his first start there since the 2011 season. Steve Pearce is at first base and Delmon Young is at DH. Manny Machado had his five-game suspension upheld by Major League Baseball and will be out until Saturday.

Chris Davis is back in the Orioles' starting lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.

Davis was held out of the lineup for Monday's game, but played hero in the bottom of the ninth with a pinch-hit walk-off three-run homer. He has been in a major funk of late, but the Orioles will have to hope that it will get him going. He'll bat fifth and play first base Tuesday.
Jun 24 - 3:01 PM

Chris Davis hit a three-run homer off Ronald Belisario in the bottom of the ninth to give the Orioles a 6-4 win over the White Sox on Monday.

Davis didn't start against Chris Sale, but he was called in to pinch-hit for Delmon Young in the ninth, even though Young was 3-for-4 in the game. It turned out to be a winning move for the Orioles, as Davis hit his first ever homer as a pinch-hitter and second career walkoff. He has 13 homers this year.
Jun 23 - 10:48 PM

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

It's a day of rest for the O's slugger, who has been struggling over the past few weeks and would have had a poor matchup against White Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Steve Pearce will get the start at first base.
Jun 23 - 3:21 PM

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.

Chris Davis is not in the Orioles' lineup Sunday.

It's just a routine day of rest for the slugger. Steve Pearce is at first base Sunday in Davis' place.
Jun 15 - 11:01 AM

Chris Davis collected his 10th homer and his eighth double Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Davis has 10 homers and 31 RBI through 50 games. That certainly doesn't compare with what he did as an MVP runner-up last season, but it's not half bad. Hopefully, he can get his average up to at least the .250-.260 range from its current .236.
Jun 11 - 11:57 PM

Chris Davis went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Brandon Workman and company did a number on the entire Orioles lineup, as Baltimore could only muster two hits on the night, but nobody wore it more than Davis. The first baseman struck out looking in the second, swinging in the fifth and again in the seventh. He's now struck out 63 times in 178 at-bats and is batting .230/.344/.421 as he's struggled to replicate his breakout 2013 season.
Jun 10 - 11:44 PM

Chris Davis slugged his ninth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Athletics on Friday.

His fourth inning solo shot off Tommy Milone tied the game at 2-2. He finished the night 2-for-5, raising his season slash to .244/.360/.451 to go along with nine homers and 28 RBI.
Jun 6 - 10:47 PM
