Designated hitter/outfielder Chris Davis was acquired by the Orioles with pitcher Tommy Hunter, in exchange for Koji Uehara, in July of 2011. Davis would prove to be instrumental in the team's turnaround and exemplary of the Orioles' style of play. In what would come to be seen as a season-defining, highlight-clip moment at Fenway Park on May 6, Davis was called on to pitch in the bottom of the 17th inning to preserve the lead after outfielder Adam Jones' three-run homer put the Orioles ahead 9-6. Davis faced eight batters, giving up two hits with one walk and two strikeouts, and was credited with the win. It was the kind of game that made the team start to believe in itself, and the kind of game the Orioles would continue to win for the remainder of the season, notching 14 consecutive extra-inning victories and setting a major-league record 29-9 record in one-run games. These almost-aberrational statistics have critics of the team predicting a downturn for the Orioles this year. Davis, who led the team with 33 home runs and 85 RBI last season, also finds himself on the hot seat this year, inheriting the starting job at first base after the Orioles decided to part ways with free-swinging slugger Mark Reynolds. At the Orioles' FanFest in January, Davis, who is still just 27, said he was looking forward to the opportunity and insisted he is up to the challenge, reminding fans that first base is his natural position.
