Wade Davis threw a complete-game shutout for his first major league victory Thursday, bringing Tampa Bay a 3-0 victory over Baltimore. The four-hit performance by Davis provided a bright spot in an otherwise dismal late-year slump that had seen the Rays lose 13 of 14 games. Davis (1-0), who spent most of the season with Class AAA Durham, threw seven innings in his major league debut last week. He did not figure in the decision in that game, then gave up eight runs in just 2 2/3 innings in a...

Carlson later said something Posada didn't like, and when Posada ran towards him, both benches...
