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
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
