This one was something of a no brainer. After a slightly less than Crush-worthy start, and a brief stint on the disabled list, Chris Davis rounded into form—and rounded the bases, a lot—this week.
Stud of the Week for May 19-25:
Davis hit four home runs and had two doubles this week, while going 8 for 19.
That would be his monster game against Pittsburgh: 4 for 5 with THREE homers and 5 RBIs. Not only was it a game for the ages, it was reassuring to Os fans, who had been getting a little antsy over Crush's lack of home run power this season. The best news? Chris tends to hit 'em in bunches.
Going 4 for 5 with three dingers wasn't even the highlight of his week! On Sunday, Chris and his wife Jill welcomed their first child, a 7-pound girl. Congrats, guys!
