Watch: Chris Davis finally snaps his 0-for-54 with RBI single

Chris Davis

Chris Davis’s nightmare is over.

The Baltimore Oriole designated hitter stepped to the plate in the first inning of Saturday’s game against the Boston Red Sox with the bases loaded and two out, and he did so with an 0-for-54 stretch hanging over him dating back to last season. Oriole fans were likely fearing the worst, but Davis came up big, hitting an RBI single to right off Rick Porcello to drive in two runs.

Even the Fenway Park crowd gave Davis a little love for breaking his futile streak.

In a way, Davis was treated like he’d just delivered a game-winning hit by his teammates.

This must feel great for Davis, and not just because Red Sox fans were giving him a really hard time on Friday. A career .236 hitter, it’s unlikely that he’s about to go on a huge tear, but hopefully he can avoid going that long without a hit again,
