Way to go former Texas Rangers 1B Chris Davis, Cy Young candidate

69793835By all accounts former Texas Rangers 1B Chris Davis is one of the good guys, so it's nice to see good things happen to this young man from Longview, Texas.

On Sunday in Fenway Park, the Baltimore Orioles completed a sweep of the Red Sox with a 9-6 win in 17 innings.

Orioles' DH/1B Davis posted one of the most unique box score lines in baseball history:

Chris Davis, DH: 0-for 8, 5 strikeouts; 0-2 with runners in scoring position (BTW - despite this beating his average is now .299; he was batting .326 before the game began).

Chris Davis, P: 2 ip., 2 hits, 0 runs, 1 BB, 2 K, 23 pitches, 15 strikes

According to Elias Sports Bureau, Davis became the first player to go hitless in eight at-bats and earn a win since Hall of Famer Rube Waddell did that for the Philadelphia A's on July 4, 1905, in a 20-inning game against Cy Young.

Davis is also the first position player to earn a win since Rocky Colavito in 1968 for the NY Yankees.

The AL East leading Orioles host the Texas Rangers for a four-game set beginning tonight in Baltimore.
