Davis had three hits and four RBIs to end his record skid with a flourish as the Baltimore Orioles snapped a four-game losing streak with a 9-5 win over the host Boston Red Sox on Saturday. Boston right-hander Rick Porcello loaded the bases on a Trey Mancini double and two walks to Dwight Smith and Rio Ruiz and was looking for an inning-ending out when Davis stepped up to the plate.

For the first time since September 2018, Davis has hit a ball, in play, past fielders, and made it to first base. Because of that, there's no downside to the team putting Davis in the lineup every day and seeing if he can post respectable numbers again.
