ATLANTA (AP) -- Doug Davis was successful in his return from cancer surgery, allowing one run in seven innings in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 11-1 win over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.
The Diamondbacks, held to only three runs in three losses at Florida this week, broke out of the slump by scoring their most runs of the season. Arizona's five homers were another high mark for the season. The D'backs scored five in the first, before Davis (2-1) even took the mound.
Davis was strong in his first major league start since April 8. He gave up five hits, striking out four and walking two.
The Braves, coming off a four-game sweep of the New York Mets, had their five-game winning streak end.
