When Chris Davis breaks out of a slump, he does it in a big way.
On Thursday, the Orioles first baseman stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the second in the midst of an 0-for-17 and snapped the drought with his league-leading 34th home run. With that long ball, Davis reached new career highs in homers and RBI (86).
His 86 RBI before the All-Star break ties Boog Powell‘s club record set in 1969.
Since June 29, Davis has seven hits: six home runs and one double.
So far this season, Davis has homered once every 9.76 at-bats.
