Orioles’ Chris Davis has sealed his place in MLB history…but not in the way most people would hope.
Last night Davis actually broke the record…for longest hitless streak.
During the Orioles’ game against the Oakland Athletics last night, Davis had the chance to avoid holding one of the only records an athlete would never want but instead he broke it with flying colors…or balls…whatever.
Now, his hitless streak has been pushed through to 49 at-bats and it is safe to say he’s in a real slump…
