Davis went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer against the Angels on Saturday. Davis took Tyler Skaggs deep in the first inning to record his 48th home run of the season. He now outpaces J.D. Martinez by six long balls to lead the majors. The rest of his stat line has remained remarkably consistent across all three of his seasons with the Athletics, though he did post new career-best marks in runs scored (98), home runs, and RBI (123).
Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday. Davis' 47th blast of the season -- a 369-foot shot to right -- capped off a four-homer barrage for the Athletics and closed out the scoring on the night. The 30-year-old has half of his eight September homers over the last five games, and his 17 RBI during the month have pushed him to a new career high of 121 on the season.
Davis went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Monday against the Mariners. Davis tallied his 46th homer of the season when he took Adam Warren deep in the sixth inning to give the Athletics a 3-1 lead. He has regularly displayed his scintillating power, homering five times in his past 10 starts. He leads the league in home runs and is among the leaders in nearly every power-related statistic, including slugging percentage and OPS.
Davis went 2-for-5 with a two home runs and three RBI in Oakland's 7-6 victory over the Twins on Friday. The slugger provided the game-winning blow in this contest, sending the Athletics to the walkoff victory with his second long ball of the day in the 10th inning off Matt Magill. The two-homer performance gives Davis a new career high of 45 after he hit 43 in each of the past two seasons, as he continues to entrench himself as one of the most consistent sources of power in the league in his age-30 season.
Davis went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a double and two runs in a win over the Angels on Thursday. Somewhat surprisingly, Davis did not leave the yard during a 21-run outburst for the Athletics, but he still managed to extend his modest hitting streak to four games. Davis has actually been relatively quiet -- by his standards -- on the power front during the month, launching a quartet of home runs over 70 plate appearances. However, he's made up for it with more consistency at the plate, as Davis' .270 average and .343 on-base percentage during September are his second-best figures in a full month this season.
