Bryant's Aaron Davidson extended his scoreless innings streak to 16 and his streak of innings without giving up a walk to 18 with 2 2/3 innings of shutout relief on Sunday.[more]
Davidson, a right-hander, helped the Giants, the Class A Rookie League affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, defeat the Padres, 6-3, in Arizona League action. He struck out two and allowed a pair of hits during the mound stint. He lowered his earned run average to 4.56.
Entering the game at the start of the third inning with the Padres leading 2-1, Davidson worked around one-out double and a two-out error in the inning, stranding runners at first and third. In the fourth, he retired the side in order on a pop out and groundballs to second and short, respectively. A bunt single opened the fifth but Davidson retired the next two before giving way to teammate Brian Irving who unleashed a wild pitch but ended the inning moments later with a strikeout.
The Giants then made a winner out of Irving by scoring five runs in the top of the sixth. The 6-2 lead proved to be too much for the Padres to overcome.
