Chris Davis showed up early on Wednesday, took extra batting practice and went 2-for-4 with a double and his league leading 21st home run. Davis had scuffled at the plate on the Orioles six-game road trip and Houston and Tampa Bay and looked frustrated coming into the series against the Angels.
I wrote about some of the pitches he saw against the Rays’ staff in my weekly column on MASNSports.com. It certainly looks like the rest of the league has adjusted to the game’s home run leader.
Homers isn’t the only category where you’ll find Davis atop the leader board. According to @MLBStatoftheDay, Davis has nine games this year with three or more extra-base hits, most in MLB.
Turns out Chris Davis 2.0 doesn’t just crush baseballs (with ease I might add), but he’s become a more well rounded hitter as well.
