For the first time in team history, the Orioles have begun a season 6-0, and they can thank Chris Davis.
The Orioles went into the top of the ninth inning at Fenway Park tied 6-6 with the Red Sox and had the unenviable task of facing closer Craig Kimbrel. Kimbrel, however, was having trouble finding the strike zone as he walked two batters while getting two outs. He went ahead 0-1 to Davis, but left a 97 MPH fastball over the plate and Davis demolished it to straightaway center field, 449 feet away, to put the O’s up 9-6.
