Chris Davis, newly-crowned owner of The Worst Slump in Baseball History trophy, finally broke out of it on Saturday against the Boston Red Sox.
Not only did Davis single to knock in two runs in his first AB in the Birds’ 9-5 win. He picked up THREE hits in the game, including a double, and four RBI.
Way to break out of it, Chris! He’d run into some terrible luck during the hitless streak, and all of baseball was relieved, in their own way, to see him finally have a couple fall in.
If we’re honest with ourselves in Birdland, we know that the “big” moments will be few and far between over the next few seasons. So, in the meantime, we celebrate the small moments. Fortunately, our friends over at BreakingT are all about celebrating moments, both big and small, so of course they put together a shirt for the occasion.
Heck, MASN even put together this montage to “celebrate” Davis’ hit.
Embrace the small moments, O’s fans. It’ll make what’s sure to be a long season a bit more enjoyable.
