If this ever happens again, I’ll go crazy. Last night, Chris Davis, the DH for the Orioles, and another DH for the Red Sox both pitched. But the hero of the night was Davis, who pitched two innings, stuck out two, and recorded a win. I believe that this has ever happened before, as in two fielders pitching in the same game. Davis pitched at Navarro Junior College, but later changed to First Base. Davis is hitting .299 with 5hrs and 14 rbis this season, a very rising star. During the game, Davis went 0 for 8, and the Orioles had no more relievers, so Buck Showalter decided to put the closest thing to a pitcher that he had, which was Chris Davis. In the bottom of the 16th, Davis struck out Jarrod Saltalamacchia , got Will Middlebrooks to fly out, and Marlon Byrd reached on an error, then Mike Aviles hit one in the gap which was fielded by Adam Jones, who then threw the ball to the shortstop who made an amazing relay throw to the catcher and gunned Marlon Byrd by four steps. In the top of the 17th Adam Jones hit a three run home run to put the Orioles up, 9-6. Then, in the bottom of the 17th, Ryan Sweeney hit a single off of Chris Davis. Davis then proceeded to walk Dustin Pedroia putting runners at first and second with no one out. He struck out Adrian Gonzalez and then, surprise surprise, David Ortiz grounded into a double play to end the game.Davis gets the win
