The Boston Red Sox will host the Baltimore Orioles today, with an 11:05 AM first pitch as part of the annual Patriots' Day festivities in Boston. Boston right-hander Rick Porcello loaded the bases on a Trey Mancini double and two walks to Dwight Smith and Rio Ruiz and was looking for an inning-ending out when Davis stepped up to the plate. It marked his first home run since blasting one against ex-teammate Zack Britton and the Yankees on August 24 of last season. Davis hit that home run off his former teammate Zack Britton.
It's been a trying season for the 33-year-old Davis. Davis lined a two-out single to right field driving in two runs.

Davis is working on a brutal stretch and has not recorded a hit all season. It took Davis until Saturday to break out of that slump, which lasted 54 at-bats.
Where does Davis go from here? If nothing else, he gives casual fans a reason to care about the Orioles, and that's not an easy task.
