BALTIMORE -- If one was to judge Chris Davis season solely by comparing his current numbers to last years figures, it would appear as if the Baltimore Orioles slugger is performing miserably. Air Max 97 Cheap Womens . That would be far from the truth. In spite of his embarrassing .189 batting average, Davis has been a significant contributor to the AL East leaders. Davis hit his fourth career grand slam, and the Orioles got a dominating pitching performance from Miguel Gonzalez in a 9-1 victory over the skidding Minnesota Twins on Friday night. Baltimores fourth win in five games was marred by an injury to first baseman Steve Pearce, who left with a right abdominal strain. The severity of the injury will be determined by an MRI on Saturday morning, and the Orioles can only hope for the best after losing third baseman Manny Machado for the season earlier this month. "Im just hoping its a day or two thing," Pearce said. "Im not feeling any pain or anything, just discomfort." If Pearce is sidelined for a spell, Davis will do his best to make sure theres no reduction in the teams offensive output. He has 14 hits in August, seven of them home runs, and has accounted for 24 of Baltimores major-league leading 172 home runs. Davis batted .286 with 53 homers and 138 RBIs in 2013. Hes tailed off considerably this year, but the Orioles wouldnt be where they are without him. "Hes got a chance to end up with 25-30 home runs and 80 RBIs. Who knows?" manager Buck Showalter said. "We know what he can do in bunches. Im real proud of the way hes continued to fight through it. A lot of people could have or would have given in, but he hasnt." Delmon Young also homered for the Orioles, who built an 8-0 lead in the fifth inning against rookie Trevor May (0-4). It was the fifth loss in six games for the Twins. Their lone bright spot was a home run by Trevor Plouffe, the 10,000th in franchise history. The Twins contributed 7,214 of those homers after the Washington Senators hit 2,786 from 1901-1960. "It would have been better in a victory, obviously, but for me its a cool thing," Plouffe said. "I was at the right place at the right time. The one man largely responsible for most of those, Harmon Killebrew, he was a great man. He was great to me when he was around, and I think this is more like his thing than mine." Gonzalez (7-7) allowed one run and four hits over seven innings, striking out six and walking one. With the exception of Plouffe, he permitted only one runner to get past first base. Making his fifth career start, May retired nine of the first 10 batters he faced before losing control in the fourth inning. The right-hander gave up a single and hit two batters with pitches before walking J.J. Hardy to force in a run. Davis then drove a 3-1 pitch into the right-field seats, the first homer allowed by May in his brief career. "There have been games where Ive had a rough couple of first at bats and Ive come up late and hit a home run or had a big hit," Davis said. "I think thats the way you kind of have to approach it when youre not swinging the bat the way you want to all the time." In the fifth, Young hit a two-run drive that glanced off the glove of left fielder Jordan Schafer into the glove of a fan in the front row of the seats. That ended Mays night. He finished with eight strikeouts, one more than he had in his first five big league appearances combined. STREAKS Twins: The Twins ended their run of six straight games without a home run. Orioles: Pearces career-high 11-game hitting streak ended. He grounded out in his only at-bat before leaving the game. UP NEXT Twins: Kyle Gibson (11-10) makes his 36th career start, first against the Orioles, on Saturday night. In his last outing, the right-hander yielded five runs in 4 2-3 innings against Detroit. Orioles: Chris Tillman (11-5) starts for Baltimore. The right-hander is 0-3 with a 6.06 ERA in four career starts against the Twins.

Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca! Hello Mr. Fraser, I am curious about the apparent game-winning goal scored by San Jose in OT last night (11/5/13) against Buffalo and how Toronto didnt catch it. It looks to me like the goal was scored and the whistle had not been blown. The shot off the post and the scrum after looked confusing enough to me for the officials to have stopped the game and gone to review? Do you have any insight on this? Thanks,Randy MarkhamOakland, CA Randy: It wasnt a case of Toronto not catching it when Tommy Wingels jammed the puck from under Ryan Millers blocker and into the net for what appeared to be the game winning goal in overtime. The men in the Toronto Situation Room were in fact reviewing that play, as they do all close calls around the net, once the puck hit the goal post and eventually crossed the goal line. Had the Situation Room spoken with Referee Mike Leggo via the headset they would have only been able to inform the ref that the puck had in fact crossed the goal line and entered the net and not when they heard the sound of his whistle. This became an unnecessary telephone communication once the Referee determined the play was dead with an "intent was to blow the whistle" prior to the puck being jammed loose and across the goal line. The Refs decision to stop the play is not a reviewable situation. The mind is always quicker than the whistle hand! For this reason rule 31.2 was instituted to compensate for the delay between the Officials visual determination that the play is dead and the physical action of blowing the whistle. Rule 31.2 reads as follows: "As there is a human factor involved in blowing the whistle to stop play, the Referee may deem the play tto be stopped slightly prior to the whistle actually being blown. Cheap Air Max 97 All Pink China. The fact that the puck may come loose or cross the goal line prior to the sound of the whistle has no bearing if the Referee has ruled that the play had been stopped prior to this happening." In reviewing the play we see Referee Leggo holding an extended wash-out signal once the initial shot struck the goal post and rebounded under Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller. As evidenced by the camera angle from the broadcast feed, similar to the sightline the referee had on the play, the puck then disappears under Millers blocker glove and appears to be covered. At this point Leggo would have clearly lost sight of the puck but paused momentarily to blow his whistle to ensure that the goalkeeper had full control of the puck and that it did not squirt loose. The Ref had to also be aware of the potential for Tommy Wingels to jam at the goalkeeper and dislodge a frozen puck. Referee Mike Leggo created some confusion on this play when he was slow in transitioning from his initial extended washout signal when the puck hit the post, to the point where Miller covered the puck and it was eventually poked free and into the net by Tommy Wingels. I concede the optics of this slow decision was bad but Referee Leggo ultimately made the correct determination that the puck was sufficiently frozen by Ryan Miller. It would have been unfair to allow Tommy Wingles to unearth a frozen puck and jam it into the net. The net result was the Refs intent to blow the play dead prior to the puck entering the net. A quicker whistle (or intent to blow the whistle) by the Referee would have eliminated any controversy on this play. Any discussion with the Situation Room would have only added to the confusion since the play could not be reviewed. Right call made - poor execution! ' ' '
