Orioles right fielder Chris Davis continued his recent tear at the plate Monday night in the Orioles' 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.
Davis' two-run homer in the ninth off Rays reliever Kyle Farnsworth, his career-high 32nd of the season, was his sixth homer in five games. He's now homered in five consecutive games, the first Oriole to accomplish the feat since Melvin Mora on Sept. 30, 2005 to April 5, 2006.
It's also largest consecutive-game homer streak in the same season since Reggie Jackson homered in six straight games on July 18-23, 1976.
