"He did a great job, and it was an outing where you felt like he was really in control the whole outing," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. "I thought for the most part he was just ahead of hitters and he had hitters off-balance the whole day."
Davies also collected the first extra-base hit of his career when he doubled to lead off the fourth inning, chasing Braves starter Julio Teheran. He later scored on Domingo Santana's sacrifice fly to extend Milwaukee's lead to 7-0.
"Whenever your team jumps out to a lead and you can keep that lead and keep going with the way that the game was progressing, that's always nice to do," Davies said.
