Davis goes deep again, ties Oriole record

The Baltmore Sun

   When Orioles right fielder Chris Davis launched that mammoth blast onto the roof of the restaurant above center field at The Trop, he became only the second player in Orioles history to homer in six consecutive games. The other was Reggie Jackson, who homered in six straight games (July 18-23) in 1976.

   Davis now has hit seven home runs over that span to take over the team lead with 33 home runs. He also leads the Orioles with 85 RBI. The homer, off Tampa Bay Rays pitcher James Shields, was the Orioles first hit of Tuesday night's game.

   Lest anyone forget, Davis was named American League Co-Player of the Week alongside Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander after hitting five homers and driving in 10 runs last week.
