Orioles' Davis singles in 1st, ending record hitless streak
BOSTON (AP) - Baltimore Orioles' Chris Davis ended his streak of futility in his first at-bat on Saturday when he lined a bases-loaded, two-run single to right in the first inning against the Boston Red Sox.
Davis had gone hitless a record 54 straight at-bats, starting this season 0 for 33 before he lined a 1-0 pitch from Rick Porcello to push Baltimore ahead 2-0.
It's the longest hitless streak for a position player.
The crowd gave what seemed mostly like a mock cheer when he approached the plate with the bases loaded and two outs. Soon some of those turned into real cheers when he got the hit.
