Davies allowed six runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out three batters over four innings Sunday against the Pirates. He did not factor into the decision.
Davies was punished by the long ball Sunday. He allowed a first-inning solo home run to Yoshi Tsutsugo and then a grand slam to Brian Reynolds in the third. Reynolds would chase Davies out of the game in the fifth after leading off with a single and eventually came around to score, charging the 28-year-old with his sixth run of the game. Davies has now failed to reach five innings in seven of his last 11 starts and sits at a 5.16 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 108:67 K:BB over 139.2 innings. He tentatively lines up for a meeting with the Giants his next time out.
