After blowing lead, Orioles bounce back for 7-6 win over Red Sox in 12 innings

With his team going deep into another extra-inning game at Fenway Park, Orioles manager Buck Showalter scanned the dugout and saw first baseman Chris Davis.

Chris Davis hits walk-off, gets pied in return

Photo: www.twitter.com/Orioles   Last night’s Orioles-White Sox game was one to remember. There’s nothing better than a walk-off, but a pinch hit walk-off from the team’s former home run leader? Even better. Chris Davis’ game winning home run was the Orioles’ first pinch hit walk-off home run since Larry Sheets in 1988. With Davis’ walk-off, comes the traditional pie...

The disappointing season of Chris Davis

Nobody expected Chris Davis to be able to match what he did last year when he hit over fifty homers and was worth 54 runs on offense. He was on my regression list to start the season and pretty much everyone else's. But I at least thought he would be better than what he has shown thus far. After 55 games, his offense has only been worth 2.4 runs on offense and his slugging...
