MLB.com @Britt_Ghiroli

NEW YORK -- Chris Davis was scratched from the starting lineup for Sunday's 11-inning, 7-4 Orioles win in New York after being hit by a pitch in the left elbow in Friday's series opener.

Davis, who wanted to play and did appear at first base in the 11th, was initially listed in his usual fifth spot in the lineup. But after manager Buck Showalter spoke to the first baseman and conferred with the team's training staff, the O's decided to give Davis a day off.
