The first baseman became just the 25th player in major-league history to hit 30 home runs in 82 games. Albert Pujols is the last player to do so, as he hit 34 homers in that time frame as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals in 2009. Barry Bonds hit the most home runs ever in his first 82 games, bombing 39 homers in the first half of the season in 2001.
Davis also set a new Orioles franchise record for most home runs through the month of June, surpassing the 27 hit by Brady Anderson in 1996 on his way to 50 home runs that season.
Davis now has three multi-HR games on the season. His first homer on Saturday came against Yankees starter David Phelps, a three-run moonshot on a 2-1 count that capped off a four-run first inning for the Orioles. Davis hit his second homer off Ivan Nova in the sixth inning, driving in Nick Markakis from first.
Davis has hit 51 home runs since June 30 of last season. The slugger is also second in the majors in RBI this year, two behind Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera.
