After going 0 for 4 with two strikeouts during the Orioles' loss to the Yankees on Sunday, Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis is on the brink of an Major League Baseball record no one wants.

Up until Monday night's game, Orioles fans had resorted to booing Davis.

Davis is two shy of the record for consecutive hitless at-bats by a position player, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Davis hit three flyballs before striking out in the seventh and eighth innings, leaving him 0 for 28 this season and 0 for 49 since hitting a double early in a game September 14.

Velez went hitless in his final nine at-bats of the 2010 season before going 0 for 37 in 2011 and eclipsed the previous longest hitless streak, shared by Pittsburgh's Bill Bergen (1909), Dave Campbell of San Diego and St. Louis (1973) and Milwaukee's Craig Counsell (earlier in 2011). Davis went 0-for-2 to start the game and then lined out to deep left field in his third at-bat to put his name in the record books for all the wrong reasons.

Fans hold up a signs referring to Baltimore Orioles' Chris Davis during the fifth inning of a baseball game between the Orioles and the Oakland Athletics, Monday, April 8, 2019, in Baltimore. And oddly enough, Davis' record-breaking out was probably the best swing he's had all season.

"I went into it not knowing what to expect", Hyde said.

'Fans are welcome to handle situations the way they want to, ' Hyde said.

Now, Davis owns a second unwanted record. I was hoping that we'd have a good relationship and that he'd play well early and hit, and he got off to a slow start. You pull for him, but this is a results business, and I understand how the fans feel. We talk a lot about that. I talk to him a lot. I don't want to mask his struggles and what he went through previous year so we're taking this thing head on, and I appreciate that from him, too, that he's open about things with me. He's making every effort to ride this ship of tough times, to take good [at-bats] every day, and it just hasn't happened. "I want to see him do well, too".

He is in the middle of a $161 million fully guaranteed contract, which obviously drew the frustrated reception.
