Wade Davis said he felt great during Monday’s 11-5 loss to the Rangers, despite allowing a career-high 12 hits and seven runs in 2 2/3 innings.


Davis, who allowed two home runs and three doubles, blamed poor location for most of his problems.

“I made some good pitches,” he said. “Overall, probably the best I’ve felt all year long. I guess that’s something positive to bring out of it even though I wasn’t great at all.”

Davis, 4-5 with a 4.52 ERA on the season, has allowed 21 hits and 15 earned runs in two career starts against the Rangers while pitching a total of 5 2/3 innings. He’s also allowed four home runs in those two starts.

In his last five starts, Davis is 1-3 with a 7.17 ERA. He’s allowed 38 hits, 15 walks and 21 runs in 26 1/3 innings.

He has allowed 14.60 base runners per nine innings. He’s allowed nine home runs in his last five starts after allowing only one through his first six.

The Rays have lost his last four starts after winning five straight.
