Streak broken! Chris Davis finally breaks MLB-record slump

The hitless streak is finally over!

After 62 consecutive plate appearances and 33 at-bats this season, the Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has broken his hitless streak at 54 at-bats with a 2-run single.

During the first inning of Saturday’s game against the Boston Red Sox the Orioles had loaded bases with two outs when Davis came to bat. Davis lined a two-out single to right field driving in two runs.

Immediately following the single Davis asked for the ball and an uproar of cheers erupted from Red Sox fans at Fenway Park.

 

It gets even better than that, during the fifth inning Chris Davis hit a RBI double to take the lead for the Orioles 3-2. Later in the eighth inning Davis hit another RBI double, making a total of 4 RBIs alone it one day!

Davis' contributions resulted in the Orioles defeated the Red Sox 9-5.

Davis’ last hit was against the White Sox last September 14 and since then he has struggled. The last time he had a 3-hit game was August 28 last year, and his average has gone up 79 points.

The hitless streak lasted for 210 days.

Davis set the MLB record for longest hitless streak for a position player.
