Chris Davis' season has already entered the record books.
Now, the Baltimore Orioles are hoping he can eventually lead them back to the postseason.
Davis looks to continue his staggering production Friday night as the Orioles visit Arlington for the first time since eliminating the Texas Rangers from the playoffs in October.
Davis has emerged as one of the most feared hitters in baseball, and his major league-leading 37 homers tied the AL record for the most before the All-Star break, set by Reggie Jackson in 1969.
Davis also has a career-high 93 RBIs, two fewer than Detroit's Miguel Cabrera for the most in baseball. He went 1 for 3 while batting behind Cabrera in the AL's 3-0 All-Star game win Tuesday after entering the break with homers in four straight games.
The first of that stretch was a solo shot in a 3-1 win over Texas on July 11, helping Baltimore (53-43) - currently 4 1/2 games behind East-leading Boston - earn a split of a four-game set at Camden Yards.
