Khris Davis went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

The walk was more important than the hit because it came with the bases loaded to produce the Athletics' first run of the game. He scored a run in the eighth inning by sprinting home from third base on a ground ball to the first baseman. He is now batting .257/.300/.528 with 33 home runs and 83 RBI in 451 at-bats.

Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and three runs scored in Tuesday's 9-1 win over the Indians.

Davis opened the scoring in style by swatting a three-run home run off Danny Salazar in the first inning. He also singled and walked in the contest. For the season, the 28-year-old slugger is slashing .257/.300/.530 with 33 homers and 82 RBI over 440 at-bats. He has homered four times in his last 10 games.
Aug 24 - 2:05 AM

Khris Davis struck out all four times he was up in Monday's loss to the Indians.

Davis now has a career high in strikeouts (125) to go along with his highs in homers (32) and RBI (79) this season. He has just 20 walks and 18 doubles in 469 plate appearances, so he's not doing much when he isn't homering. Still, he's homering enough to make up for it.
Aug 23 - 12:57 AM

Khris Davis slugged his 32nd home run of the season on Sunday against the White Sox.

It was a two-run shot in the top of the fourth inning off White Sox starter Jose Quintana and gave the A's their only runs of the game. Davis is batting just .257 with a .299 on-base percentage, but the 28-year-old slugger is on pace for 42 home runs and 103 RBI.
Aug 21 - 6:19 PM

Khris Davis went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and four runs scored in Friday’s win over the White Sox.

Davis also singled and doubled in the victory. He’s now up to 31 homers on the year. Only Edwin Encarnacion and Mark Trumbo have hit more in MLB.
Aug 19 - 11:05 PM

Khris Davis clubbed his 30th home run on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Athletics to victory over the Mariners.

Davis' two-run shot in the sixth inning pulled the A's to within four runs at 7-3. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4 and is now slashing .254/.294/.516 with the aforementioned 30 bombs and 75 RBI. While the on-base percentage isn't optimal, he's one of the top sources of right-handed power in all of baseball.
Aug 14 - 7:05 PM

Khris Davis is not in the Athletics' lineup Thursday against the Orioles.

Coco Crisp is in left field, Jake Smolinski is in center field, and Danny Valencia is in right field for the series finale versus Baltimore. Davis is just getting a day off.
Aug 11 - 1:14 PM

Khris Davis was ejected from Thursday's game against the Angels for arguing balls and strikes.

It's his first ejection in 420 major league appearances. Davis took exception to a called strike three in the eighth inning and let home plate umpire Eric Cooper know about it. He went 1-for-4 before exiting.
Aug 4 - 10:45 PM

Khris Davis hit two home runs and went 3-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored on Wednesday.

Davis hit a solo homer in the first inning off Yu Darvish, then smoked a two-run blast off Matt Bush in the eighth. He added a double for the third hit. He sports an unusual .256/.294/.514 slash line due to a very low walk rate and a high strikeout rate. But it was the home runs his owners were after when they drafted Khris Davis. He has 25 longballs with 48 runs and 67 RBI.
Jul 27 - 11:47 PM

Khris Davis is out of the A's lineup Tuesday.

Coco Crisp is in left field and Jake Smolinski is in center versus the Rangers. This appears to be a routine day off for Davis, who's sitting on 23 homers and 64 RBI.
Jul 26 - 4:59 PM

Khris Davis hit his 23rd homer Monday against the Astros.

Davis went without a homer in his first 10 games this month, but he has four in four games since play resumed after the All-Star break. Barring a trade, he'd seem to have a good shot at becoming the first Athletic to reach 35 homers since Nick Swisher in 2006 and maybe the first to 40 since Jason Giambi in 2000.
Jul 19 - 1:38 AM

Khris Davis hit two solo home runs to help the A's edge the Blue Jays 5-4 on Saturday.

Davis hit a solo blast in the second inning and another in the sixth, both off Jays starter R.A. Dickey. He's now got 22 home runs and 60 RBI on the year. Both statistics have him among the leaders in the league. Davis has been all the A's had hoped he would be when they picked him up this spring.
Jul 16 - 10:00 PM

Khris Davis (shoulder) went 3-for-5 at the plate in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Davis missed a couple games with a bruised left shoulder, but he'll be fine. He's slugged 19 homers for the A's this season.
Jul 3 - 9:20 AM

Khris Davis (shoulder) is slated to take batting practice on Thursday.

If that goes well, he could be available off the bench tonight against San Francisco. Davis is hoping to return to the lineup Friday after being scratched from Wednesday's game with a bruised shoulder. He's been a bright spot for the A's this year with 19 HR and 53 RBI. Coco Crisp will start in his place Thursday night.
