While most of the drama last night was focused on bean balls and collarbones, one of the bright stories of the new baseball season is Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles. He hit his AL leading 6th home run (tied with Michael Morse) last night against the Boston Red Sox in Fenway to get the O’s on the board in their 3-2 victory. This win was fueled by Adam Jones 2-RBI night and knotted them into a tie for first place in the AL East.

There were 8 homers last night in MLB. The longest was from Athletics Yoenis Cespedes 436 foot bomb in Anaheim, served up by Sean Burnett. It was Cespedes’ third dinger of the season.
