Davis Hits Three Homers In First Six Innings
Oriole Park at Camden Yards has been the site of some historic nights in 2012, and Chris Davis added to it Friday with three home runs off Toronto pitchers.
Davis hit two solo homers to right field -- in the second and fourth innings -- and then hit his third, a two-run shot to left field, during the sixth to give the Birds a 5-1 lead.
Davis now has 23 homers this season. He struck out during the eighth inning, but the crowd roared its approval as he walked back to the dugout.
The Orioles became the first team in Major League Baseball history to participate in back-to-back games when someone hit three home runs. Texas' Adrian Beltre hit three Wednesday off Orioles pitchers.
Earlier this season, Texas' Josh Hamilton hit four home runs during one game against the Orioles.
