Maddon sees positives in Davis' poor outing

Wade Davis said he felt great.

Manager Joe Maddon thought his right-hander had some of his best stuff of the season.

Yet somehow, Davis got rocked by the Rangers in an 11-5 loss Monday. He allowed seven runs on a career-worst 12 hits while lasting only 2 2/3 innings, the shortest non-weather-affected start of his career.

"That was just a game where if it was a little bit on the plate. They were finding holes," Davis said. "Everything they hit was going somewhere in a hole, landing in center field."

Davis, 4-5 with 4.52 ERA, has been inconsistent at best throughout the season.

The Rays insist there's nothing wrong physically with Davis, that he just hasn't found a groove yet.

"He's not been consistent with his game to this point," Maddon said, "but I really am kind of encouraged. I saw the better velocity, I saw good delivery, they just hit him tonight."
