Chris Davis pulled a Houdini against the New York Yankees on Monday, making a ball disappear.

The Baltimore Orioles first baseman, who has earned a reputation for sending balls out of the park, took one into his jersey on a bad swing.

After whiffing on a pitch from CC Sabathia, the ball ricochets and takes an odd bounce before hopping up and skidding along Davis’ jersey.

Davis leads the majors in home runs with 48 on the year, though it certainly didn’t look like it on that swing. 

Texas Rangers fans can certainly take delight in the play. 

The Orioles won 4-2, and the game also featured a shouting match between managers Joe Girardi and Buck Showalter. The Yankees are now three games back of the Tampa Bay Rays for the second wild-card spot, while Baltimore is just 1.5 games back.

The Orioles will certainly be counting on Davis’ power down the stretch.
