"The day just kind of started off with me going in the cage, trying to get my approach down," Davis told MiLB.com after the game. "But I wasn't expecting it to be a big day or anything. Once it got going, everything was clicking on all cylinders."
The 20-year-old knocked in his first runs of the afternoon with a three-run double in the third inning and then added four more on his grand slam in the fifth. Davis swatted his second double and picked up his eighth RBI in the sixth inning.
With his huge day already in hand, he thought about trying to take third and complete the cycle, he told MiLB.com.
"It was on my mind," Davis said to MiLB.com. "I looked back and saw [Peoria right fielder Nick Thompson] already had the ball by the time I was at second, so I didn't want to take the chance and put the brakes on myself. Just wanted to give my teammates the chance to drive me in."
On the year, Davis is hitting .294/.364/.426 with three home runs and 30 RBIs.
