FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - It didn't take long for Eric Davis to show why the Baltimore Orioles believe he will be an ideal replacement for Bobby Bonilla as their starting right fielder.
Davis went 3-for-3 with a monstrous homer and a stolen base Sunday in the Orioles' 11-2 exhibition rout of the Montreal Expos. His home run took about two seconds to leave the park and hit the scoreboard with a resounding thud.
``Nope, didn't get all of it,'' Davis said, quite sincerely.
Davis, signed as a free agent after Bonilla left Baltimore for the Florida Marlins, is expected to deliver speed, power and defense.
``We've got a little different look with him in there,'' manager Davey Johnson said. ``He stole a base, hit one 900 miles and made some good plays in the outfield - made them look pretty easy.''
