He tripled which plated a run in the 1st inning, cracked a two-run shot in

allowed 8 hits and 2 walks in 4 and 2/3 innings.
‘I’ve spent a lot of time in the cage and made some adjustments and they’ve
paid off,’ Davis said. ‘I just take the same approach up there. I don’t
overanalyze it. I go up there, see the ball and try to put a good swing on
