Repeating a sight that was quite common during the 2013 season, Chris Davis helped the Baltimore Orioles get the scoring going against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night.
Facing Dustin McGowan with no runners on base in the top of the first inning, Davis got enough of this off-speed pitch to send it over the center field wall and started the scoring in a game that ended up seeing a lot of runs.
Through 19 games Davis had just one home run. That slow start in the power department motivated Davis to change his approach at the plate this week as he tried to be more patient. Two days later, Davis delivered his second home run of the year, which may or may not be because he was not forcing the issue at the plate.
This shot set the tone for the rest of this game as the Orioles went on to win by a final score of 10-8.
