Davidson’s day got off to a tough start as he allowed four runs in the first inning on back-to-back home runs by Rafael Devers and Hunter Renfroe. He sat the side down in the second and recorded a pair of strikeouts but allowed a one-out triple to J.D. Martinez and a walk to Xander Bogaerts in the third before exiting. Davidson was sitting around 92 and touched 94 mph with his fastball in the first inning. His velocity was around 88 and 90 mph before he left the game in the third. Davidson was replaced by Sean Newcomb.
Davidson was making his fourth start of the season after replacing Huascar Ynoa in the rotation. Bryse Wilson is pitching at Gwinnett Tuesday so he would be in line to take Davidson’s spot if he is forced to miss a start.
