Eduardo Encina reported after yesterday's game that Orioles slugger Chris Davis shaved his mustache before postgame interviews and says that will be one lasting effect of Hisashi Iwakuma's no-hitter.
Davis, who was one of three Orioles to reach base via walk against the Seattle Mariners' veteran right-hander Wednesday, had tried to loosen the club up by keeping his cheesy mustache.
It seemed to work since he has been on a hot streak lately. But then the Orioles lost the final two games of the nine-game, 10-day road trip to finish with a 4-5 record on the West Coast.
And since the Crushtache couldn't keep the Orioles from flailing away at Iwakuma's slow, slower and slowest offerings Wednesday, the mustache had to go.
What a shame.
