by Bill Chuck on June 18, 2013

Once again, the story last night in Detroit for the Tigers was Max Scherzer in their 5-1 win over the Orioles.

However, once again the story last night for the Orioles was Chris Davis slamming his major league leading 24th homer of the season.

Davis has already hit more homers than any member of the 2007 Orioles
