Wednesday, July 18th POD goes to Jonathan Davis

 

That’s back-to-back games with 2-hits for the 26-yr-old outfielder. Davis played left field and batted leadoff for the Buffalo Bisons.

Davis reached 1st base via a hit by pitch to lead off the bottom of the 1st inning and stole 2nd with Richard Urena at the plate. Davis was stranded.

 

Jonathan Davis’ 2nd at-bat was a leadoff double (2) to get the 3rd inning started. Davis advanced to 3rd on Urena’s single and scored on a Danny Jansen sac fly to center field to get the Bisons on the board.

 

Davis led off the 5th inning with an infield single and stole second, his second SB of the day. Urena doubled him home to give the Bisons a 3 to 2 lead. He flew out and struck out swinging in his final two at-bats.

 

In 6 game since being added to the Buffalo roster, Jonathan Davis is batting .308 with a pair of doubles, a pair of RBI, a pair of walks, 8 strikeouts, 5 runs, and 3 stolen bases. Overall, Davis is slashing .302/.387/.438 in 84 games. He has shown solid extra-base power but his HR stroke from years past is missing; however, he does seem to be running much better than 2017.

 

Bo and Vlad Show

 

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. did not play. I think he is done in Florida and should be heading to NH for a few at-bats to close out the month before heading to Buffalo to finish the year.

 

Bo Bichette played short and hit out of the leadoff position. Bo hit a double and walked in 3 at-bats, scoring a run, striking out and stealing a base. The 2-yr-old is batting .269 with 24 doubles, 5 triples, 8 homers, 48 runs batted in, and 27 stolen bases.
