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
Royals released LHP Joe Paterson.
The 29-year old former Diamondbacks reliever signed a minor league deal with the Royals this year, received an invite to spring training but still failed to make the team. He struggled at Triple-A Omaha and posted a 5.68 ERA over 12 innings, so the Royals felt it was better to make room and develop other pitchers. Analysis: Howard Bender
