Stat Line of the Night — 8/18/2013 — Chris Davis
Few would argue against the fact that Miguel Cabrera owns the most feared bat in the Major Leagues these days. As for the second most feared bat, that would have to belong to Chris Davis.
The man they call “Crush Davis” was doing some more crushing on Sunday against the Colorado Rockies, as he went 4-for-5 at the dish with a homer, a double, 2 RBIs and three runs scored during the Orioles’ 7-2 victory.
With the win, the Orioles improve to 67-56 on the season. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear as though that record will be good enough to get them into the post-season again, but on the bright side, Davis’ 45th dinger of the season does move him five clear of Cabrera for the most homers in the Majors, and it earns him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, August 18, 2013.
