Vintage Fridays: Boog Powell, 1966 Topps #167
Speaking of Davis, I had the occasion to witness "Crush" 's 48th home run live and in the flesh tonight. It was part of a three-homer effort by the Baltimore offense, as Danny Valencia and Matt Wieters also went deep to support a great pitching performance by Scott Feldman. The righthander held the White Sox to five hits to notch his first career complete-game shutout, and the first one-man whitewash by an Oriole pitcher since Jason Hammel blanked the Braves last June. I believe it's the first time I've ever seen a complete-game shutout by an Oriole in person; it really was a special night.
