Davis may have had a big moment in the last week of last season when he fought back from an 0-2 count against Tampa Bay left-hander David Price. The at-bat, which lasted nine pitches, ended with Davis singling to left. From that moment until the season's end a week later, Davis went 9-for-22 (.409) while facing guys such as John Lackey and Felix Hernandez.
"It was like a breakthrough," Davis said of the at-bat. "I put my ego aside, choked up on the bat and did what I needed to help the team. I think I had a moment of enlightenment. I can hit with two strikes. That gave me something to fall back on when I've got to battle. I've got a plan of attack."
