Chris Davis had a monster season, but his Baltimore Orioles couldn't get it done down the stretch. In the final game of the season, one in which the O's weren't playing for anything, Davis was still playing hard regardless of the team's circumstances. In doing so, he managed to sprain his wrist and had to leave the game.

Davis was the sole reason Miguel Cabrera is not being celebrated today as the only back-to-back Triple Crown winner in history. While Cabrera leads the American League in just about every offensive category, Davis lead the league in home runs. He set an Orioles record with 53 long balls this season.
The Orioles had a second-consecutive solid season this year, but it simply was not enough in the highly competitive American League. The Cleveland Indians landed the top AL Wild Card spot while the Texas Rangers and the Tampa Bay Rays will play game 163 tonight to determine who gets the second Wild Card spot. The Boston Red Sox ran away with the division. That left the Orioles on the outside looking in despite Davis' impressive year.
