Dahl started his third career game Wednesday, and went 1-for-4 with his first career home run and a pair of strikeouts.
Dahl's first career home run should come as a surprise to no one, as he flashed solid power in the minor leagues, slugging .569 between Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque before being called up this season. The dinger was extra sweet for Dahl as it chased Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy, who entered the inning carrying a perfect game through five. Dahl should continue to get regular starts moving forward.
Davis went 3-for-4 with a double, two home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Rangers.
The 28-year-old slugger displayed his power in hitter-friendly Globe Life Park with his 10th career multi-home run game -- his 24th and 25th of the season -- beginning with a solo shot to right off Yu Darvish, and later cushioning the scoring for Oakland in the eighth with a two-run bomb after Coco Crisp had given the team the lead earlier in the inning with a go-ahead shot. Davis is having a strong first season with the Athletics, posting a healthy .256/.294/.514 line while leading the team in home runs with 25.
Estevez sent down the Orioles in order in the ninth inning Wednesday to preserve a 3-1 lead and earn his 10th save of the season.
Estevez continues to shine in the closer role, picking up his second save in as many days. He needed just seven pitches to pick up this one, shutting down a powerful Orioles offense and punching out All-Star catcher Matt Wieters for the final out. Estevez has now converted 10 of 11 save chances on the season, and should get plenty more chances if the Rockies continue their recent winning pace.
What initially looks like a pedestrian line was anything but for Bundy, who carried a perfect game into the sixth inning with one out. But Bundy was yanked with two outs in the sixth after giving up a walk and a pair of home runs on hanging change-ups, finishing the start with a season-high 89 pitches. The start was just Bundy's third of the season, and Baltimore appears to have him on a tight pitch count, as well they should given Bundy's long injury history. Bundy said after the game that he was actually disappointed with his season-high eight strikeouts, citing it as something that raised his pitch count, rendering him unable to pitch deeper into the game. Bundy owners shouldn't expect too many innings from him going forward, but Wednesdays start was certainly an encouraging one overall.
Gomez (hamstring) will visit the team doctors Thursday to assess his hamstring injury, Brian McTaggert of MLB.com reports.
Gomez finished the night 1-for-1 with an RBI prior to being lifted and replaced in center field by Jake Marisnick. The Astros don't play again until Friday in Detroit, so an update on his status should come well before that contest.
