As the designated hitter, Chris Davis went 0 for 8, striking out five times and grounding into a double play. As the designated pitcher he fared much better. Davis outdueled the Boston's Darnell McDonald, another position player, by pitching two scoreless innings and getting the win as the Orioles outlasted the Red Sox 9-6 in 17 innings. It was the first major league game since 1925 in which each club put a position player on the mound.
