Chris Davis pinch-hit in the bottom of the ninth and hit a walk-off three-run home run off White Sox closer Ronald Belisario to give the Orioles a 6-4 win on Monday.
Davis was originally given the day off on Monday night, but was eventually the hero after smacking a game-winning home run in the ninth inning. Although he is still sitting on a batting average just north of the Mendoza Line (.219 BA), he continues to hit for power, now with 13 home runs and 40 RBI through 219 at-bats. With six of his 13 home runs coming in the month of June, Davis is an interesting buy-low candidate as we inch closer to the halfway point.ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
