Chris Davis Biography
Chris Davis was born March 17, 1986 and is an American professional baseball first baseman with the Baltimore Orioles. On July 30, 2011, Davis was traded with pitcher Tommy Hunter to the Baltimore Orioles for reliever Koji Uehara.
On May 6, 2012, in a 17-inning 9-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, he went hitless in eight at bats, but ended up being the winning pitcher. His feat was the first of its kind since Rube Waddell achieved it on July 4, 1905. Davis was the designated hitter until he was pressed into service as a relief pitcher in the 16th inning after manager Buck Showalter had depleted the Orioles' bullpen. He struck out two batters and did not allow a run in his two innings of mound work. He was the first position player in the American League (AL) to be the winning pitcher in a game since Rocky Colavito on August 25, 1968, and the first to pitch for the Orioles since Manny Alexander on April 19, 1996. He and losing pitcher Darnell McDonald were the first position players on opposing teams in the same contest to each work in relief since Ty Cobb and George Sisler on October 4, 1925 and the first where both earned pitching decisions since Sam Mertes and Jesse Burkett on September 28, 1902.
On July 31, 2012, Davis hit his first career grand slam off New York Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova in an 11-5 win and after facing a 5-run deficit previously. On August 24, 2012, Davis had his first career three home run game, against the Toronto Blue Jays. His second home run was his 22nd of the season, setting a new career high.
