After dominating baseball's opening week with his offense, Chris Davis made a costly mistake on defense in the Baltimore Orioles' loss to the Minnesota Twins on Saturday.
Davis and Baltimore will try to bounce back to take Sunday's finale from the Twins, who must rely on spot starter Pedro Hernandez because of an injury.
Davis had spent his first four games lighting up opposing pitching, going 9 for 15 with 16 RBIs while becoming the fourth player in history to homer in his first four contests. Davis singled in a run Saturday, but failed to handle a groundball in the bottom of the ninth, an error that led to Justin Morneau's go-ahead single with two outs in Minnesota's 6-5 win.
"My glove was down, my head was down, the ball just went right through my legs," Davis said. "Just one of those things. I'll wear it on that one."
Though he didn't send a ball over the fence, the left-handed slugger can still tie a club record Sunday by driving in a run for the sixth consecutive game.
