Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis can finally feel some relief.
It's Patriots' Day 2019 in MA, which means it's the time of year for the Boston Red Sox to play their annual early game. Davis turned on the offering and pelted the pitch deep to right field.
He took Heath Hembree deep for a two-run shot that went 408 feet and was a no-doubter from the moment it left his bat.
I gained 15 cents on the Marlins F5 line, 9 cents combined on the Dodgers game and F5 lines, 10 cents on the total, and two cents on the Pirates moneyline. He is now hitting.089 on the season. The former home run champion is 0 for 33 this season.
Davis, who's in year four of a seven-year, $161 million deal with the Orioles, told reporters that he consulted with a coach before the game to ensure calling for the ball would not be considered "bush".
According to MLB's Statcast data, at 108 miles per hour off the bat, the ball was the hardest Davis has hit all season.
