PITTSBURGH -- After struggling for the early part of this season and dealing with an oblique injury, Chris Davis has now hit four home runs in his past 13 at-bats.
As I'm sure you know by now, three came in his final three at-bats Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.
A three-homer game by an Orioles player has happened 20 times in modern-day club history (and four times by the St. Louis Browns), according to home run historian David Vincent.
An Orioles player has never hit four in one game.
By accomplishing the feat Tuesday and on Aug. 24, 2012 against the Toronto Blue Jays, Davis becomes just the third Orioles player to do it multiple times.
Slugger Boog Powell and Hall of Famer Eddie Murray each homered three times in three different games. Hall of Famer Goose Goslin did it twice for the Browns.
Here’s the list provided by Vincent:
