Chris Davis had a lot of firsts on Sunday. Being mentioned in the same sentence as Cy Young had to be at the top of the list. Davis, who started the game as the designated hitter for the Orioles, ended up accomplishing something that no other player has done in more than a century. After going 0-for-8 at the plate during Baltimore's 17-inning 8-5 win in Boston on Sunday, Davis...
The Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox, 9-6, in 17 innings. This game was the most bizarre I've ever witnessed. I can't even recap this. If there was a game that needed a combined team effort -- this was it. Chris Davis tosses two scoreless innings and wins? Craziness. He actually looked very good, struck out two and mixed up his speeds on the pitches. I'm...
In the first major league game since 1925 in which both teams put a position player on the mound, Baltimore designated hitter Chris Davis overcame an awful day at the plate by pitching two scoreless innings and getting the win as the Orioles outlasted Boston 9-6 Sunday in 17 innings.
Davis went 0 for 8, striking out five times and grounding into a double play. But in a season full...
The Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox engaged in a marathon affair Sunday afternoon, one that lasted 17 innings. Box scores of extra inning games are typically littered with interesting numbers and caveats, but the line of Orioles’ DH Chris Davis was particularly interesting.
Davis started at designated hitter and tallied a few strikeouts, make that five and a GIDP to round...
BOSTON - That wasn't first baseman/DH Chris Davis who had ice packs on his right shoulder and elbow after Sunday's game. It was winning pitcher Chris Davis who had the ice on. Davis, who had a miserable day at the plate that almost got him into the record books for strikeouts, outpitched Red Sox outfielder Darnell McDonald to pick up the first win by an American League...

And, yeah, that's the first time that two position players have squared off against each other since (believe it or not) Ty Cobb and George Sisler went toe-to-toe out of position on the last day of the 1925 season.The Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox ran out of pitchers- enter Davis who had gone 0-for-8 at the plate with five strike outs by the time the game was over. Davis...

Mark Reynolds, who hit his first homer of the season in the third, added a sacrifice fly in the 13th and Jim Johnson put Boston down in order to end the game after 4 hours and 37 minutes.
Troy Patton (1-0) pitched two scoreless...
The biggest surprise team of the 2012 MLB season thus far has been the Baltimore Orioles at 19-9. They're getting timely hitting and decent starting pitching, but it's the bullpen that has been the big story. Their relief pitchers are so effective that a position player, Chris Davis, was forced to the mound today and worked 2 scoreless innings and picked up the win...
The Baltimore Orioles won again, this time in Boston, to kick-off their three game set against the Red Sox, by a score of 6-4 in 13 innings. Baltimore has won three in row, and nine out of their past eleven games. They are 17-9 so far this young season, and once again the bullpen came through in the clutch, tossing seven scoreless innings. As well, timely hitting played a big...
In the battle of the relief corps, the second place Orioles bested the Red Sox 6-4 in inning 13.
Neither starting pitcher was impressive tonight. Bruce Chen for the O's got tagged for 4 runs over 5 innings. Lester wasn't dominant either, although he wasn't exactly awful, surrendering 3 runs over 6. He also walked 3 batters and gave up a home run to Reynolds.

To sum this one up, Darnell McDonald was the losing pitcher. Both teams exhausted their bullpens and the Orioles' first baseman, Chris Davis came up with the winning pitcher in the 9-6 Orioles 17 inning victory to complete the sweep. After 6+ hours of baseball, the Sox are tired and will have no rest for the next 2 weeks.
