Davies (5-6) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three in 4.1 innings, taking the loss versus St. Louis on Saturday.
This was the third straight start in which Davies failed work into the sixth inning after doing so in his four previous outings. He mostly settled in after allowing an RBI single to Matt Carpenter in the first inning, but Paul Goldschmidt took him deep in the fifth. Tyler O'Neill followed with a single, and reliever Adam Morgan allowed O'Neill to score on a Tommy Edman home run. Davies' ERA ticked up to 4.37 with a 1.45 WHIP and 59:48 K:BB across 92.2 innings this year. He's alternated strong and poor stretches, so he'll probably welcome the All-Star break to get some additional rest.
