BALTIMORE, April 5 — Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis is on top of his game early into the 2013 season.
On Friday he became just the fourth player in major league history to hit a homerun in his first four games of the season.
In the Orioles 9-5 victory over Minnesota , Davis tallied a grand slam and five total RBIs.
He joins an exclusive club that also includes the late, great Willie Mays, Nelson Cruz and Mark McGwire.
Thus far he is batting .600 with four homers and 16 RBIs.
“If you put him in the Grand Canyon, he’ll hit it out,” teammate Adam Jones told ESPN. “Whatever he’s doing, stick to it. Show up tomorrow and do it again.”
Right around this time, the ultra-superstitious baseball folks climb out of the woodwork and start chattering about what he’s doing to achieve such results.
Is he wearing mismatched socks? Is he refusing to shower? Where is he getting the magic?
“I don’t feel like I have anything magical,” he said. “I feel comfortable and I feel like I’m being patient. I’m taking what they give me.”
If he goes yard for a fifth straight game, we will revisit the magic angle.
