Chris Davis, the Orioles' first baseman who pitched the last two innings of Baltimore's 17-inning victory over the Red Sox on Sunday, says he felt bad that he struck out Adrian Gonzalez in the bottom of the 17th . . . but only a little.

"I felt bad," said Davis on Tuesday's 'The Dan Patrick Show', but he added: "I was definitely not happy with my performance at the plate, 0-for-8, and I did realize that Gonzo was 0-for-7. So it did give me a little bit of a bittersweet victory to not be the only guy going 0-for-8."

His other strikeout victim was Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and he laughed when Patrick asked if he would get the Sox catcher to sign the ball.

"I don't know if Salty is going to do that," Davis said. "He wasn't really happy about the whole experience. I played with him in Texas for a good bit and he and I are good friends and he wouldn't even look at me when I walked up to the dish for my next at-bat. I think he was pretty upset about the whole thing."
