Chicago- Zach Davies He pulled the rim of his hat for a moment as he approached the Cubs dugout on Sunday night. He was walking off the field towards a very suitable standing ovation from Wrigley Field’s loyal people, following another great performance.
Since the brutal first month of the season, Davis looks like a much different pitcher and has played his role in helping the Cubs rise in the National League Central. The same was true for the Cardinals, who were confused by his low-octane arsenal with a 2-0 victory over North Cider’s.
Davis gave the Cubs a 62/3 shutout inning. This was done after puzzled Padres with six zeros in San Diego on Tuesday. Over the last nine turns in Chicago’s rotation, right-handed players created 1.86 ERA after working at 9.47 ERA until April.
Against St. Louis, Davis relied heavily on his distinctive combination of sinkers and change-ups to mix and match through 13 batters before finally allowing a hit. Tyler O’Neal snapped a hitless run in one-fifth with a sharp single in and out of Patrick Wisdom’s glove. Third baseman quickly regained the ball and threw O’Neill. O’Neill wanted a double idea.
Davis ended with six strikeouts, two walks and two hits, but the Cubs attack provided ample support. In the third, Chicago made two runs and, helped by shortstop Paul DeJong’s defensive mistake, prepared to sweep his rival Cardinals in three games.
