Doug Davis did not get his usual rest before his most recent outing. It didn’t make much of a difference.
Davis, pitching on just three days’ rest, limited the Los Angeles Dodgers to just four hits over six scoreless innings Tuesday in a 4-1 victory.
“I didn’t really feel any different out there,” said Davis, who was forced to pitch on short rest when Ben Sheets came down with a viral infection. “I got in trouble in the second and third innings because I was trying to rush and make the perfect pitch.”
With Davis back on regular rest, the Brewers will try to improve to 3-3 on their nine-game West Coast trip.
San Diego starter Ismael Valdez shut down the Brewers on Saturday, pitching a four-hitter for his sixth career shutout in a 4-0 win. The Padres became the last team in the National League to have one of their starters throw a complete game
San Diego had lost three of its previous four.
