(BALTIMORE) — Chris Davis belted a pair of home runs as the Baltimore Orioles (46-36) topped the New York Yankees (42-38) Saturday night, 11-3.
Davis hit his first homer, a three-run blast, in the first inning of off Yankees starter David Phelps to give the Orioles a 4-0 lead. In the sixth inning, he walloped a two-run homer off of Yankees reliever Ivan Nova to increase the O’s lead, 11-2.
With the two homers, the 27-year-old Davis now leads the majors with 30 home runs. He’s the first player in Orioles history to have 30 homers before the end of June. He needs just one more home run in the next 14 games to break Brady Anderson’s record for most homers before the All-Star break.
