MILWAUKEE -- The month of May has been good so far for Zach Davies, and the Milwaukee Brewers' young right-hander will try to stay on the uptick Thursday in the opener of a four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Miller Park.
Davies started the season with an 0-3 record and 8.79 ERA. He has gone 5-0 with a 3.94 ERA in six starts since but hasn't exactly been sharp in each of those games. Opponents are batting .291 against him during that stretch with 11 walks and 26 strikeouts.
Still, it has been good enough to get the job done -- especially with a Brewers offense that has bordered on explosive for much of the season.
