Chris Davis’ second-inning solo homer on Friday night was record-setting.

It was the 66th homer to land onto Eutaw Street – behind the right-field flag court – in Camden Yards history.

And it was also the ninth this year – the most Eutaw Street homers hit in any one season. The previous record was eight, set in 2008.

Davis has hit three there this year.

He homered again in the fourth and again in the sixth – neither onto Eutaw Street – giving him 23 on the season. That surpasses his career-high of 21 set in 2009.

The Orioles have 28 Eutaw Street homers in their history; opponents have 38.
