Hank Blalock didn't play first base for Oklahoma tonight, but Chris Davis did.

He homered again, off of former Tampa Bay hurler Brian Stokes.

In his last 162 games, dating back to mid-May 2007 in Bakersfield, Davis has hit .327/.378/.636.

With 42 doubles.

And 49 home runs.

And 156 RBI.

The left-handed-hitting Davis against left-handed AA pitchers in 2007: .229/.308/.543.

Davis against left-handed AA pitchers in 2008: .276/.276/.379.

Davis against left-handed AAA pitchers in 2008: .286/.348/.667.

The only place Davis has worn blue since high school has been in Surprise, Arizona.

The 22-year-old from Longview is playing like he misses the blue.
