apostrophe abuse when he did so. I guess the artists over at Bowman weren't big on grammar.
Anyhow, Courtney wasn't much of a power hitter throughout his 11-year career with the Yankees, Browns/Orioles, White Sox, Senators, and Athletics. He totaled 38 home runs in 946 games, with a season high of eight. In the Birds' inaugural 1954 season, Clint hit four in 397 at-bats.
Today, Chris Davis hit his fourth home run in his first 15 at-bats of the 2013 season. This one was the biggest yet, a first-pitch, tie-breaking grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning in the O's home opener. "Crush" is now the fourth player in MLB history to go deep in each of his team's first four games, joining the formidable trio of Willie Mays, Mark McGwire, and Nelson Cruz. He also has 16 of the team's 29 RBI, and that's a modern record for the first four games of the year - at least since 1920, when they started keeping track of runs batted in as an official statistic. Since my sister and I attended today's game, Chris is also going to be taking the blame for my hoarse voice. I may have completely lost my fool mind with that one swing of the bat that wrapped up the Orioles' 9-5 win over the Twins. But that's a trade I'll make every time.
