The first two innings of the final game in Arlington had me very worried about Kyle Davies. In the first, he walked in a run on his last of four walks in the inning. He was absolutely unable to throw strikes until he struck out Taylor Teagarden looking to get himself out of the first. Then in the second, the smoking hot Ian Kinsler eviscerated a ball, driving it deep to left. I was starting to wonder if this was the Davies of old, having mysteriously forgotten how to pitch.
As I start this post, he has righted the ship and has retired 11 of the last 12 batters he has faced since the Kinsler bomb with one out in the bottom of the second. His 30 pitches in the first likely will limit him to five innings, as his pitch count sits at 96 after five innings, but the ease with which he has plowed through the last three innings, maybe Trey lets him come out in the sixth.
More to come later, I'd imagine.
