Orioles' Davis singles in 1st, ending record hitless streak

Mike Elias says Orioles are ‘absolutely’ committed to keeping Chris Davis and helping him snap historic slump

Mike Elias says Orioles are ‘absolutely’ committed to keeping Chris Davis and helping him snap historic slump

Davis walked to the plate in the first inning to what mostly appeared to be mock cheers when he was announced. There have been over 61,000 individual position player seasons in baseball history, and, by WAR, Davis' 2018 was one of the 20 worst.

Chris Davis finally did it! Not only did he snap the historic streak, but he gave the Orioles an early 2-0 lead over the Red Sox.

But that all ended when Davis hit a two-run single off Red Sox's star Rick Porcello.

Davis has a long way to go before getting back to his peak.286 batting average in 2013, when he was also an All-Star and third in AL MVP voting with 53 home runs and 138 RBI.

Baltimore will need Davis to find his groove again at the plate, especially since he still has three seasons left on his $161 million deal. Mitch Moreland went 2 for 5 with a home run and the game-tying RBI double while Rafael Devers added a double two RBIs of his own including the game-winning RBI in the bottom of the 9th. Manager Alex Cora was impressed with how he helped Eduardo Rodriguez attack Orioles hitters Friday night.

Not only was it a hit, it was a two-run single! Instead, Davis lofted a 92.9-m.p.h. fastball into the right field gap, scoring both Mancini and Smith with his first hit of the 2019 season. Pedroia returned after getting Friday off as the club proceeds slowly after he missed all but three games past year due to a knee injury.

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia looked like a vintage version of himself in the eighth inning, making a diving stop on a Cedric Mullens grounder and throwing him out at first.

The Orioles now lead the Red Sox 2-0 in the third.
