Davis went 2-for-3 with a walk, a two-run home run and a stolen base in Friday's 3-0 win over the White Sox. With Jharel Cotton (blister) and the Oakland bullpen stifling Chicago's bats, Davis first-inning blast off Mike Pelfrey proved to be the only offense the A's would need. The 29-year-old only has three homers in June but has otherwise enjoyed a productive month, hitting .294 (25-for-85) with 16 RBI and 14 runs in 22 games.
Davis went 3-for-4 with an RBI double, another two-bagger and a run in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Astros. Following a month of May in which he hit an unsightly .186, Davis' bat has caught fire in June. He's now racked up six multi-hit efforts and is just one RBI short of the 15 he compiled last month. The slugging outfielder is slashing .301/.358/.479 over his 81 plate appearances since June 1, with a robust .455 BABIP during that stretch playing a significant role in his success.
Davis homered and knocked in a pair in a 2-for-4 game Sunday against the Yankees. Davis rebounded from a four-strikeout night Saturday in a big way, as he mashed his first home run in 12 games. The blast turned out to be a game-winner, as it gave the Athletics a two-run lead that they would barely hold onto for the rest of the contest. Davis remains streaky, but the overall product has been solid this year: His batting line sits at .240/.320/.496, powered by 18 home runs.
Davis went 1-for-5 with two RBI a walk Thursday against the Yankees. Davis blooped a two-run single in the bottom of the 10th inning off the glove of Starlin Castro in shallow center. Despite having 17 home runs on the season, only one of those have come since June began (14 games), but Davis now has 11 RBI and is hitting .315 in that span (60 plate appearances). Strikeouts continue to plague Davis, who has struck out the fifth-most in all of baseball (85).
Davis went 1-for-3 with two RBI from a sacrifice fly and run-scoring double in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jays. The slugging outfielder has shown some improvement at the plate in the early going in June, hitting safely in three of his last four games and compiling four RBI over that span. Davis has also scored seven runs in the first six games of the new month after crossing the plate 12 times in all of May. The 29-year-old's fortunes when making contact have significantly improved as compared to last month, as he's tallying a .364 BABIP over his last 22 plate appearances after generating a .217 figure in May.
