Davis pitches shutout in third career start

The Baltimore Orioles outkicked their coverage tonight with Wade Davis, who threw a four-hitter in the Rays' 3-0 win at Camden Yards for his first major-league victory.

Davis walked two, struck out 10 and threw 80 of his 124 pitches (124?!?) for strikes. (His previous season high for pitches was 111, if you're curious.)

Davis, who worked out of a bases-loaded, none-out jam in the first, retired the last 10 hitters he faced, including striking out the side in the ninth.

Not too shabby for his third career major-league start.
