It didn’t take long for Orioles first baseman Chris Davis’ season-opening offensive tear to continue on Thursday night against the Red Sox at Fenway Park.
In Davis’ first at bat of the game in the second inning, he crushed an Alfredo Aceves pitch to center field for his sixth homer of the season. Davis’ solo shot put the Orioles up 1-0.
Davis now has homers in 13 of his last 16 games dating back to Sept. 26, 2012. Included in that stretch are consecutive homer streaks of four and six games.
He hit his sixth homer in his 29th at bat this season. Last year, it took him 137 at bats to hit his sixth homer.
Davis is now hitting .414 (12-for-29) with six homers, 19 RBIs and 33 total bases.
