Let’s start by giving a shoutout to Chris Davis for breaking his hitless streak to start the year.

I can’t imagine how tough it would be to have my struggles so well documented, so congrats to Chris for recording a clutch-two out hit with runners in scoring position. Not only did he end his hitless streak, but he had himself a day afterwards. And he had a sense of humor about the whole thing, asking for the ball that ended his drought.
