Chris Davis is officially on the Eutaw Street board. The Orioles' big slugger cleared the flag court with a 418-foot blast to right in the seventh inning against former Oriole Jim Miller. It was Davis' fourth homer of the season, and the first of his career to land on Eutaw Street. It's the 59 th homer to land there in Camden Yards' history, the 25 th one hit by an Oriole. The last time an Oriole did it was June 7, 2011, by Luke Scott, also against the Oakland A's. Davis' homer gave the Orioles a 10-1 lead Saturday night.

Suspended first baseman Chris Davis took batting practice with the Orioles at Camden Yards on Thursday, a day ahead of the American League Championship Series opener against the Kansas City Royals. But Davis, who has five games remaining on a 25-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy, will not be added to the ALCS roster, manager Buck Showalter said Thursday. In order to include Davis on the roster, the Orioles would have had to play shorthanded until the suspension ends.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is back in the starting lineup to today's afternoon series finale against the Angels. Davis, who left Friday's game after his right knee buckled running through the first base bag in the fifth inning, sat out of Saturday's game after an MRI was performed and revealed patellar tendonosis in the knee. Both Davis and Orioles manager Buck Showalter were eyeing Tuesday as a possible return date to take advantage of the extra day of rest that comes with Monday's off day. But about 90 minutes before today's game, Davis was running sprints in the outfield and stretching the knee under the supervision of Orioles head trainer Richie Bancells.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Chris Davis returned to the baseball field Friday, but it was a field far from the one the Orioles played on in Toronto. Davis was over a thousand miles away in steamy Sarasota, playing Instructional League baseball as he tries to remain in shape during his 25-game suspension for a positive amphetamine test. In his first game since reporting to the Orioles' Sarasota complex on Tuesday, Davis went 1-for-2 with a walk against a pair of 18-year-old Tampa Bay Rays prospects in a game that ended in a 9-inning, 3-3 tie. Davis - who will miss at least the first eight games the Orioles play in the postseason, should they advance that far - left Friday's game after three innings.

After going 4-for-4 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's series clincher against the New York Yankees , Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is officially hot again. Davis had come back to earth slightly after a molten start to the season. But since May 9, he's hitting .375 with five home runs and 13 RBIs. That doesn't quite equal the pace Davis set when he drove in 16 runs in the season's first four games. It's awfully good for any mortal, however. The funny thing is that Davis said he felt awful in batting practice before Wednesday's game.

It was another routine sight at Camden Yards on Sunday as first baseman Chris Davis watched another home run fly into the seats. The home run, which was the Orioles' first run of the game against Detroit starter Rick Porcello, jumpstarted another comeback in the Orioles' 4-2 win. “He had pretty much been dominating us the whole game,” Davis said. “He threw me some good pitches to hit earlier in the game, and I wasn't able to get to them, and I just thought I'd be a little more aggressive that at-bat.

There are a number of statistical undertones as Chris Davis continues one of the greatest offensive seasons in Orioles history . Davis has a strong chance of overtaking Brady Anderson's single-season franchise home run record (50 in 1996), and he can also play a role in preventing Detroit's Miguel Cabrera from becoming the first player in baseball history to win Triple Crowns in two straight seasons. With that in mind, we'll provide a periodic update on Orioles Insider telling you everything you need to know about Davis' home run chase.

With the Orioles closing in on their first division title in 17 years, the resilient ballclub found out Friday its pennant run would not include slugging first baseman Chris Davis, who Major League Baseball suspended 25 games for a drug policy violation. “I can't speak for everybody, but I'm sure guys are disappointed to lose such a big part of our team like that at this time of year,” said Orioles pitcher Darren O'Day, who was Davis' teammate for three seasons with the Texas Rangers before both came to the Orioles.

When the news of Chris Davis' 25-game suspension broke, a good friend of mine commented that a "player should only be suspended if the drugs are actually working" ( "Orioles' Chris Davis suspended 25 games after testing positive for amphetamine," Sept. 12). In the case of Chris Davis, I think his .196 batting average and 173 strikeouts are proof enough that the Adderall was quite ineffective. Brian J.

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.

Orioles slugger Chris Davis, suspended recently for using a banned stimulant, was caught amid a leaguewide crackdown that began three years ago as players' use of Adderall spiked, according to sports physicians and other experts. Amphetamines — a drug with addictive properties — have long been a part of the game's darker side. Even the home run record-setting Hank Aaron acknowledged using the stimulants, once commonly known as "greenies. " The action by Major League Baseball sheds light on growing concern about amphetamines — a type of drug that has become increasingly potent.

Three weeks into this season, Steve Pearce walked out of the Orioles manager Buck Showalter's office in Toronto, sat down and just stared into his locker. It was an all-too-familiar feeling for Pearce, who had just been told he was being designated for assignment. The Orioles had an early season roster crunch and needed to add bullpen reinforcements. Pearce, who had just seven at-bats at the time, was the odd man out. Pearce's hope was that he'd clear waivers, be outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk - where he could receive regular playing time - and eventually rejoin the major league club.

Mike Soukup was driving southbound on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway on Monday afternoon when he saw a stream of brake lights and then a pillar of smoke. He then saw a pickup truck sideways on its passenger side. One person had been ejected from the vehicle, he said, and another was pinned underneath the truck. He noticed a pool of gasoline forming on the pavement. Soukup, 55, pulled over where he saw a man waving at him in the middle of the highway to come help. He began helping the man try to push the truck back on its wheels.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter fidgeted in his chair, admitting he was uncomfortable about the possibility of tying his mentor, Billy Martin, on the all-time managerial wins list. Monday night's 5-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays was the 1,253rd of Showalter's career, tying Martin for 36th place in baseball history. Showalter said he didn't know he was drawing close to Martin, who managed the New York Yankees when Showalter was an up-and-coming minor league manager in the Yankees system, until his daughter, Allie, informed him recently.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter spoke with Chris Davis on Sunday and expects the suspended first baseman to soon go to the organization's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla., in an attempt to stay sharp. Showalter wouldn't specify when Davis will get there, except to say he's "headed to Sarasota here before long. " Showalter said Davis likely will clean out his apartment in Baltimore - which players usually do in late September or early October - and then drop off his things at his home in Texas before going to Florida.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, who said he has never dealt previously with an oblique injury, said he had two platelet-rich-plasma injections into his left side Monday, which could help him to return to baseball activities quicker. “They drew my blood and injected the platelets from my blood into my oblique because it is supposed to speed up the healing process,” Davis said. The slugging first baseman is eligible to come off the disabled list May 11, but oblique injuries tend to linger.

Just seven days ago, Baltimore's sports fans, the faithful clad in orange and purple, were brimming with optimism. The Ravens were set to open what they hoped would be a bounce-back season with star running back Ray Rice due to return at the end of the week from a two-game suspension for a domestic violence incident - a penalty roundly criticized as too light. The Orioles, meanwhile, were rolling toward a division title, leading their nearest rivals by a margin they hadn't enjoyed in decades.

After reading Chris Davis' apologetic statement on his suspension from the Orioles for taking a drug he wasn't allowed to take under the rules of Major League Baseball, I had to look up the word "mistake. " A "mistake" is what Davis said he made. His manager, an Orioles broadcaster and a teammate used the word as well. "I made a mistake by taking Adderall," Davis said. "We all make mistakes," said Buck Showalter. "The big boy made a mistake," said Joe Angel, one of the voices of the Orioles on radio.
