- Chris Davis provided Baltimore’s lone run in yesterday’s 4-1 loss against the Twins with a solo home run. Since collecting his first hit of the season on April 13, Davis has slashed .323/.364/.710 with three home runs, nine RBI and five runs scored.
- In seven appearances (three starts), John Means has a 1.74 ERA while allowing 0.87 home runs per nine innings. The rest of Baltimore’s pitching staff this season has combined to compile a 6.44 ERA while allowing 2.66 home runs per nine innings.
- Through 25 team games this season, Tim Anderson has 35 hits, five home runs and 10 stolen bases. He is only the second AL player all-time to reach those thresholds through 25 team games in a season, along with Baltimore’s Brain Roberts in 2005.
