Orioles´ Davis ties unwanted MLB record

9 April 2019 02:44

Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis tied a MLB record for futility on Monday after going 0-for-46 at the plate.

Davis went hitless in his first two at-bats against the Oakland Athletics and is now amid a poor run, dating back to September 14.

The 2013 All-Star and Silver Slugger is hitless in 25 at-bats this season.

So, Davis has now tied the record for consecutive hitless at-bats by a non-pitcher. Eugenio Velez also went hitless in 46 straight at-bats with the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers from 2010-11.

Davis lined out to right in his first at-bat off Athletics starter Marco Estrada, then lined out to left in the third inning and drew applause from sympathetic fans at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.  Despite the two hard-hit balls, he had nothing to show for it.

Davis signed a seven-year, $161million contract with Baltimore after the 2015 season.

In the first three seasons of that deal, Davis hit .199 with a .296 on-base percentage and .391 slugging percentage.
