Right-hander Zach Davies, the Orioles' No. 12 prospect, threw six scoreless innings Thursday, extending his shutout streak to 19 innings and helping Double-A Bowie defeat Richmond, 5-1, in the first game of a doubleheader.

Davies limited the Squirrels to two hits and faced three batters over the minimum. He struck out nine batters, walked none and threw 91 pitches.

First baseman Christian Walker, the Orioles' No. 13 prospect, doubled and drove in two runs to lead Bowie's offense. Catcher Michael Ohlman, the club's No. 7 prospect, added a hit and a run.

The first half of Davies' season was marred by two trips to the disabled list, including a month-long stay due to shoulder tendinitis. He struggled in his first three appearances after returning in late May, allowing 13 runs on 16 hits in 10 innings.

But Davies turned the corner last week. His shutout streak began with six scoreless innings at Trenton on June 16 and continued it through his next two starts. During the streak, he is 3-0 with 16 strikeouts and a 0.47 WHIP.

Overall this season, Davies is 4-4 with a 3.69 ERA. He has struck out 48 batters and walked 20 in 46 1/3 innings.
