Orioles' Davis singles in 1st, ending record hitless streak

16 April 2019

It marked his first home run since blasting one against ex-teammate Zack Britton and the Yankees on August 24 of last season.

Davis' dinger came in the eighth inning of Monday's game against the Boston Red Sox.

Back in 2013, Davis won the Silver Slugger Award, when he put the entire league on notice with 53 homers and 138 RBI.

With the bases loaded in the first inning, Davis lined a single to right field.

The hit extended the Orioles' lead to 6-1 over the Red Sox. He broke the record for the longest hitless streak in baseball in early April. Chris Davis has gotten a hit!

We'll see if this hit will be the at-bat that puts momentum in Davis' favor.

During Saturday's game against the Red Sox, Davis picked up three hits, including a single and two doubles. The previous mark was set by Eugenio Velez who went 46 consecutive at-bats without a base hit stretching over the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Where does Davis go from here?

"I think the biggest thing for me is just not having the headache of having to answer questions, and have my teammates have to answer questions, and [manager Brandon] Hyde - I mean, good grief, he's had to answer questions pretty much every day about me", Davis told reporters Saturday. If nothing else, he gives casual fans a reason to care about the Orioles, and that's not an easy task.
