During the regular season, Tyler Davis had one start in which he allowed fewer than three hits, tossing four hitless innings against Class A Advanced Carolina on May 24. He repeated that feat Monday in the Arizona Fall League.
The Rangers right-hander didn't allow a hit or walk a batter through four innings in Surprise's 2-1 loss to Salt River at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. If not for his second-inning throwing error, Davis' outing would have been completely unblemished.
The 24-year-old starter had allowed three runs -- two earned -- on six hits and one walk while striking out two in his previous two AFL outings spanning four innings. He didn't fan a batter and tossed 26 of his 43 pitches for strikes.
D-backs right-hander Ryan Atkinson nearly matched Davis on the other side, allowing one run on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts to lower his fall ERA to 3.94.
Cardinals No. 18 prospectOscar Mercado and Nick Dini (Royals) had two hits apiece for the Saguaros, who scored their lone run on Twins No. 17 prospectLaMonte Wade Jr's solo homer to right-center in the fourth inning. That lead held until the ninth inning, when Michael Perez (D-backs) tied the game with a single to center and No. 25 Arizona prospectJack Reinheimer followed with a single to left for the walk-off win.
