FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»April 11, 2002:
Doug Davis (20) fires a 2hit complete game as Texas beats Mark Mulder and the A's, 70. Davis, an 11-game winner last season, had been criticized by pitching coach Oscar Acosta in spring training for not working hard enough. He will go 15 in his next eight starts and be demoted to (AAA) Oklahoma. Kevin Mench hits his first ML home run and drives in four runs, while Ivan Rodriguez and Rafael Palmiero each have three hits.
