Chris Davis on the wrong side of history

Baltimore Orioles’ first baseman Chris Davis broke an MLB record that no big league player wants to hold. With his 0-for-5 game on Monday against the Oakland Athletics, Davis broke the record for most consecutive at-bats without a hit at 47. He ended the game with the streak at 49. He broke Eugenio Velez’s record of 46 consecutive at-bats in 2010-11. Davis’ last hit came on September 14, 2018 when he doubled off of James Shields. Of his 49 at-bats, Davis has struck out 29 times. Davis snapped his streak at 54 at-bats with an RBI single on Saturday against the Red Sox.

His 31-game hit streak surpassed George Brett’s 30-game hit streak in 1980 as the longest in Royals history. So far this season, Merrifield is batting .339 with an .869 OPS.
