3 takeaways from the Red Sox 8-1 loss to Baltimore

The Orioles slugger went 0 for 54 before breaking his slump.

Chris Davis extended his record hitless streak to 0 for 54 when he lined out to end Baltimore's 6-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Friday night.

Not only was it a hit, it was a two-run single! The crowd cheered for Davis as well as his teammates in the dugout. Soon some of those turned into real cheers when he got the hit.

The fortuitous moment arrived in the first inning of the Orioles-Red Sox game on Saturday.

Prior to that single, Davis had been hitless in 62 consecutive plate appearances (also an Major League Baseball record) and 33 at-bats this season.

His last hit was back on September 14, and as his unfortunate streak continued through the Orioles' first 14 games this season - he played in 12 - it became the hot topic of conversation. He had 62 straight plate appearances with no hit. The previous mark was set by Eugenio Velez who went 46 consecutive at-bats without a base hit stretching over the 2010 and 2011 seasons. The stat was noted by MASN's Steve Melewski. Davis now has one hit in his last 55 at-bats. The Orioles' lead was short-lived, with the Red Sox tying things up in the 4th.
