#9: Khris Davis, May 26 vs. Baltimore Orioles

It was a Memorial Day game for the Brewers, and the offense came ready to play. They entered the sixth inning up 4-3, and were looking to add some insurance runs off of Orioles starter Chris Tillman. With one out in the inning, Khris Davis came up to the plate and blasted the second pitch he saw out to right field, clearing the Toyota Territory and landing on the concourse. It was the first of back-to-back home runs, as Lyle Overbay followed Davis with a home run of his own.

Here is video of the back-to-back home runs:

The home run from Davis measured at 439 feet, leaving the bat at 107.3 MPH and was a no-doubt shot. It would have been a home run in 29 of 30 MLB ballparks that day.

Unfortunately, the back-to-back home runs would not build a big enough lead for the Brewers. Despite good play from Davis that day (4-for-4 at the plate and a great catch in left field), the Brewers would end up losing the game 7-6 in 10 innings.
