Wade Davis bails out Greg Holland in win vs. Brewers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Holland faced six batters and could not get an out. The Brewers cut the lead to 8-5 before Wade Davis had to come on and finish off the win for his eighth save of the season.

"I made it exciting," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "That's my fault. I hadn't thrown him in six games. I had an opportunity to throw him in St. Louis to keep him fresh and I didn't. So yeah, that was rust. His stuff was really, really good. But everything kind of came back to the middle.

"It's just location and rust."

Holland was charged with three runs on four hits and one walk before Davis retired all three batters he faced.

"No, I wouldn't say [the layoff] was it," Holland said. "I threw a bullpen earlier today. My stuff, I thought, was the best I've had all year. I just made some bad mistakes when I was ahead in the count."
