BALTIMORE -- Orioles slugger Chris Davis has tried just about everything to break out of lengthy hitting slump. Extra batting practice and intensive video study havent worked. Maybe a seat in the dugout will help the Baltimore star come up with the solution. Davis wasnt in the starting lineup Monday night against the Chicago White Sox. Manager Buck Showalter explained the move as simply an effort to get Delmon Young some playing time, but Davis knew better. He attributed the benching to his lack of hitting this month. "Thats pretty evident," Davis said. "Its about putting the best nine out there every game, giving yourself a chance to win, and lately I just havent been very good." Davis is batting .216 with 12 homers and 37 RBIs. Over his previous 14 games, he was 7 for 54 (.130). Last year, Davis hit .286 and led the majors with 53 home runs and 138 RBIs. "If youd have asked me in the off-season or during spring training if I thought I was going to struggle like Im doing this year, Id have told you that you were crazy," Davis said. Of the day off, he said, "Maybe it will give me a chance to clear my head." Davis misery this season began in earnest with an oblique injury that put him on the disabled list. That, however, is not an issue in his current struggle. "Im trying to figure it out. I know its frustrating for people to watch me go through it, but can you imagine how much more frustrating it is to actually go through it?" Davis said. "At the same time, we still have a lot of baseball left to play and I know Im going to get an opportunity to come out of it. I know Ill come out of it." Nothing hes tried to reverse the trend has worked, and Davis acknowledged that he hasnt a clue what to do next. "Im not really feeling a whole lot at the plate right now other than frustration," he said. A year ago, Davis was so sharp at the plate that almost every swing produced results. This year, not so much. "When youre hitting .330, it feels like you hit every hole, every pitch you take is a ball," he said. "When youre hitting just over .200, it feels like every pitch you take is a strike and every time you hit a ball hard somebody is standing there." Teammate Adam Jones suggested that a bloop hit, and not a tape-measure home run, could be the cure. "He might need to get jammed, bad jammed, and he hits it on the label right above his fingers and it falls for a base hit," Jones said. "He might figure it out from there." Showalter said Davis would start Tuesday, and the manager was optimistic that his first baseman will soon get back on track. "Hes close," Showalter said. "I have a lot of confidence it will pick up as the season goes." Juan Cuadrado Jersey . Bozak and Clarkson suffered the injuries in pre-training camp workouts, according to Carlyle, who said they made "small amounts of improvement" from Friday to Saturday. After the players were deemed less than 100 per cent by doctors after Thursdays medical testing, the Leafs held them out of on-ice testing and are being cautious. Rolando Mandragora Jersey . He made another correct read. The Browns, who have been shuttling quarterbacks on and off the field all season, finally got some good news on that front: Campbells ribs are only bruised. http://www.juventusfcstore.com/Customized/. The Oilers have been shut out in three straight home games and are in last place in the Western Conference with a 4-14-2 record. "Things have obviously not gone as well as I would have thought probable. Kwadwo Asamoah Jersey . The Toronto Maple Leafs were holding a news conference, so they got curious. It didnt take long for them to find out via social media that coach Randy Carlyle was coming back with a two-year extension and assistants Greg Cronin, Scott Gordon and Dave Farrish were being let go. Fabrizio Caligara Jersey . Perhaps their first trip to the city of Winnipeg in 16 years can serve as the shakeup they need.SAN JOSE, Calif. - Jannik Hansen angered the San Jose Sharks with his hit to Tommy Wingels head. They got even more upset when he scored immediately after leaving the penalty box.Hansens goal turned the momentum in the second period, and Ryan Miller stopped one of two penalty shots he faced to help the Vancouver Canucks snap a four-game road losing streak by beating the Sharks 3-1 on Tuesday night.It swings momentum, Hansen said. These guys are so good on the power play. If they dont score they create momentum. They were getting opportunities. But scoring right at the end of theirs that kind of turned everything in our favour and we were able to get a little bit of breathing room.Bo Horvat and Radim Vrbata also scored for the Canucks, who have won their last three games in San Jose. Vancouver bounced back from a lacklustre loss in Anaheim on Sunday to get a key win against a division rival.Miller made 31 saves in all to beat the Sharks for the seventh straight time. He stopped Joe Pavelskis penalty shot in the first period and then allowed a goal on one to Joe Thornton in the second.Pretty wild, Miller said. I was waiting for a third. Everything kind of happens in threes.That was all the Sharks would get as they lost their third straight game. Alex Stalock made 18 saves.Hansen was sent to the penalty box when he knocked Wingels down with a hit to the head. Wingels was forced to leave the game to get checked out for a possible concussion. Hansen was penalized for two minutes but could be in for more punishment from the NHL although he believes the hit was clean.As soon as Hansens penalty ended, he took a pass from Alex Edler and skated in alone on Stalock to score his ninth goal of the season. That made it 2-0 and added insult to injury, although Wingels returned to the game later in the period.I didnt like it, Sharks coach Todd McLellann said.dddddddddddd. I didnt like the hit, I didnt like the fact that he came out of the box and scored the winning goal and got to play the rest of the night. That certainly wasnt the reason why we lost.The Sharks answered after Thornton was pulled down on a breakaway by Chris Tanev. Thornton beat Miller on the penalty shot, ending a streak of seven straight misses for San Jose. Thornton scored the Sharks previous penalty shot goal on Dec. 30, 2009, against Washington. San Jose had two penalty shots in that game, as well, as Ryane Clowe also scored.The Canucks added to their lead midway through the second when Vrbatas wrist shot from the circle deflected off Stalocks glove and into the net.The Sharks failed to generate many chances in the third against Vancouvers stingy defence and had their eight-game home winning streak snapped.For me theres a price our team has to pay and right now we arent reaching deep enough, not digging deep enough, we want everything on sale and take the easy way out of it, McLellan said.Vancouver struck first thanks to a fortunate bounce when Horvats centring pass deflected off defenceman Brenden Dillons skate and trickled past Stalock.The Sharks had chances to tie it in the first period but Pavelski hit the crossbar on a penalty shot, and Miller made four saves to help kill three power plays in the period.Obviously our best penalty killer is between the pipes, Hansen said. Were limiting opportunities and when they do get shots, its from the points not through the seams or making it hard on him. Its a joint effort right now.NOTES: The Canucks have killed 34 of 36 penalties in December, including all four this game. ... The Sharks are 1-for-4 on penalty shots this season. ... San Jose F Matt Nieto returned after missing nine games with an ankle injury. Chris Tierney was sent back to the minors.
