A Bizzare Designated Win

May 6, 2012

This past Sunday, the game between Baltimore Orioles and Boston Redsox made Fenway Park history. This game set a record by lasting six hours and 17 innings. The Orioles ended up winning nine to six, using some unlikely pitchers at the end of the game. Baltimore called upon their designated hitter, Chris Davis, to pitch in order to preserve the win. This was an interesting move because Davis last pitched at a Junior College in Navarro Texas. Currently, Chris Davis is the only player to go 0 for 8 at the plate, while still being the winning pitcher. In turn, the Redsox called upon designated hitter Darnell McDonald, who served up the game winning homerun to Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones. Both teams’ use of designated hitters allowed for such great history to be made at Fenway Park.
