Davies pitched four and a third innings, allowing five earned runs on five hits. However, he headed back to the dugout with a 6-5 lead due to a strong offensive effort.

After allowing four runs to score in the first, Davies settled in nicely, but a stretch of three straight walks in the 4th inning resulted in another Dodgers run.

The 30-year-old is an Arizona native, as he attended Mesquite High School in Gilbert, Arizona. Stay tuned for more updates as Davies will receive x-rays to determine the extent of the injury.

On average, the recovery time for a strained oblique can range from somewhere around six weeks.
