It's hard to believe that it's only been a month in the majors for Zach Davies, but he has shown a lot of improvement in that month. After getting hit hard in two of his first three starts, he settled down to pitch quality starts in his last three, with the last two both scoreless appearances. Last night was the best one, as he pitched seven shutout innings, allowing just five hits and two walks with six strikeouts. Meanwhile, the offense put up five runs on five singles and a run in the fifth inning, which was more than enough for the win.
