• Roenicke said it again Sunday -- "Khris Davis is our left fielder" -- and for the second straight ballgame, he proved it, starting Davis over recently acquired Gerardo Parra, despite the fact Parra was 9-for-25 lifetime against Clayton Kershaw.
"When [Davis] is swinging well, I want him out there," Roenicke said. "Numbers are great, but sometimes you can't go by just that."
He's more numbers: Davis entered the day with a .315/.354/.598 slash line against left-handed pitchers. Granted, none of them were named Kershaw.
