Watch: Chris Davis hits a pinch-hit walk-off homer opposite a White Sox

Chris Davis had been scuffling, and with lefty Chris Sale on a mound, it was a ideal night for a Orioles initial baseman to float a pine. He didn’t get a whole night off, however. Manager Buck Showalter called his series in a bottom of a ninth, and Davis delivered a walk-off three-run homer.

Davis has had a tough time following adult final year’s 53-homer campaign. He strike only dual homers in 22 Apr games before going on a infirm list for an ambiguous strain. Then, of a 5 dingers he strike in May, 3 came in one game. Though he strike 5 homers in Jun before to Monday, he was in a 4-for-36 tailspin, and attack just .187/.274/.413 for a month.

The Orioles soldiered on gamely though him, with Adam Jones attack a two-run homer off Sale in a initial inning, though Jose Abreu gathering in 3 runs opposite starter Wei-Yin Chen and reliever Ryan Webb around a third-inning groundout, a sixth-inning solo homer (his 22nd) and a seventh-inning RBI double, using a measure to 4-2. Caleb Joseph embellished a domain to 4-3 with a solo homer off Zach Putnam in a eighth. Ronald Belisario came on to tighten out a game, though authorised a singular to Steven Pearce and afterwards strike Jones with a pitch. He struck out Nelson Cruz, and afterwards Showalter sent Davis to pinch-hit for Delmon Young.

On a seventh representation of a at-bat, Belisario hung a slider, and Davis incited it into a commemoration for a Camden Yards faithful.

The win pushed a Orioles (40-35) forward of a Yankees into second place in a AL East, 2 1/2 games behind a Blue Jays. The detriment forsaken a White Sox (35-42) serve into final place in a AL Central, 7 1/2 games behind a Tigers.
