It was fireworks night at Camden Yards on Friday night, and it was Chris Davis who provided the in-game show, launching three home runs in a 6-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Davis knocked solo shots in the second and fourth and then a two-run bomb in the sixth. The crowd came to its' feet in the eighth, but Davis went down swinging. No Oriole has ever hit four homers in a single game...
Davis now has 23 long-balls on the year, second only to Adam Jones (24) and now leads the team with 64 RBIs (Jones has 63).
Zach Britton turned in his second straight quality start, lasting 6 2/3 innings and giving up two runs on four hits and two walks, fanning six. Matt Lindstrom gave up a two-run shot in the ninth, but Jim Johnson retired the side to pick up his 39th save of the season, tied for best in the Majors.
The O's (68-57) are now tied with the A's for the second Wild Card spot...Steve Johnson takes the mound on Saturday night.
