Orioles' Chris Davis joins the 30-homer club

September 29, 2012|By Dan Connolly | The Baltimore Sun

Chris Davis homered in the fourth inning – a two-run shot that was his fourth in his past three games.

It also was his 30th of the season – something he has never done as a big leaguer, although he reached the milestone in the minors before.

Davis is the second Oriole to get to 30 this season, joining Adam Jones, who has 32.

It’s the sixth time in Orioles history that teammates have hit 30 or more homers in a season. The others: J.J. Hardy and Mark Reynolds (2011); Brady Anderson and Rafael Palmeiro (1996); Eddie Murray and Larry Sheets (1987) and Boog Powell and Frank Robinson (1966 and 1969).
