To call Chris Davis by his nickname “Crush” may actually be an understatement, following his torrid start to the 2013 MLB season.

2012 saw Major League Baseball have its first Triple Crown winner since 1967, when Carl Yastrzemski did it. So far for 2013, Davis is leading the American League in all of the Triple Crown categories.

Currently, Davis is hitting a ridiculous .556 with four home runs and an even more insane 17 runs-batted-in. (On a side note, Adam Jones is second in batting with his .522 mark—not too shabby either.)

Davis started off his season the right way, hitting a home run and driving in three runs as he helped Baltimore defeat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-4 in the season opener. The next game, also against Tampa, Crush hit another homer and drive in four runs. In the series finale, Davis hit another bomb while driving in four runs, yet again.

Baltimore then traveled to Minnesota where they faced off against the Twins. Davis greeted them just as warmly with another home run and five runs-batted-in. In the second game of the series, Davis “only” went 1 for 3 with no home runs, but still managed to drive in a run.

During his first four games, Davis drove in 16 runs, the most in MLB history during that span according to ESPN Stats & Information.  Thanks to his hot streak, he helped get Baltimore off to a 3-2 start, keeping them on track with the Boston Red Sox for the American League East lead.

Davis had a career year in 2012, setting career bests for home runs (33), runs-batted-in (85), hits (139), and runs (75).

Can he keep this up?

As much as Baltimore fans will hate me for saying it, not so much. Davis is a career .261 hitter who tends to be streaky—think Luke Scott or Mark Reynolds.

Helping Davis  and the 2013 O’s are Adam Jones and Nick Markakis who both hit ahead of him in the lineup. If they don’t get on base, Davis has no one to drive in, but as of now there’s no problem—Jones is hitting .522 and Markakis is hitting .348 with an on base percentage of .400.  Brian Roberts was also playing well before getting hurt; a hamstring injury will put B-Rob out for 15 days. He was hitting .417 before his injury and will hopefully be back by the end of April.

All in all, a decent start for the Orioles as they took two of three from the Rays and have split their first two games with the Twins. It’s still early, but so far, so good for the O’s.
