Five for Friday: Orioles records that could fall in 2013
Chris Davis has been a home-run machine. Manny Machado is swatting doubles at a historic rate. Even Jim Johnson, despite his struggles, may scribble out his own name in the Orioles record book. A third of the way through the season, several players and the team as a whole are chasing single-season milestones. In this week's Five for Friday, blogger and reporter Matt Vensel looks at five club records that could fall in 2013.

After crushing nine home runs in April and 10 more in May, Davis leads the major leagues with 19 home runs. Talk about a hot start -- and just think, Camden Yards is just now starting to hit 90 degrees on a nightly basis. As Davis looks to continue putting potholes in Eutaw Street, the first baseman is on pace to hit 57 home runs, which would shatter Brady Anderson's franchise record of 50 hit in 1996.
