Orioles' Davis singles in 1st, ending record hitless streak

Orioles' Davis singles in 1st, ending record hitless streak

Major League Baseball's coldest hitter ever is now on a hot streak.

The next pitch was an 88-mph slider that Davis turned on and deposited into the right-field bleachers for his first home run of the season.

The hit extended the Orioles' lead to 6-1 over the Red Sox. They have been a favorite of greater than -200 just twice previously during this span, beating Baltimore 12-1 in 2009, and Toronto 12-7 in 2005.

For Davis, it was the slugger's first home run since August 24.

Orioles right-hander Dan Straily carried a no-hit bid into the fifth inning and was as good Monday as he was bad in his first two appearances with the team, helping the club secure an 8-1 win over the Red Sox on Patriots' Day at Fenway Park.

It's been a trying season for the 33-year-old Davis. He's now gone 54 straight at-bats without a hit if you date back to last season. Davis drove in four runs, and was instrumental in Baltimore's 9-5 win. Chris Davis has gotten a hit!

Davis is working on a brutal stretch and has not recorded a hit all season. It's not much, but it's a start.

The model recommends two full-game moneylines, and one moneyline for the first five innings (F5) on Monday.

The days of Davis receiving MVP votes are over, but he still walks and can provide pop.
