It was never a matter of if, but when Orioles first baseman Chris Davis would join the 40-homer club. The slugger went into the All-Star break with 37, but came back a bit slow, going homerless in his first ten games after the break. But he homered Tuesday, he homered yesterday, and now he has homered tonight off of Mariners starter Aaron Harang for #40. The ball landed on Eutaw Street, traveling an estimated 442 feet according to MASN.
Davis becomes the fifth Oriole to cross the 40-homer plateau and is the first since Rafael Palmeiro in 1998 to accomplish the feat.
