Rangers Trade Chris Davis

TORONTO, CANADA (KLTV) - Just hours after the Texas Rangers beat the Blue Jays 3-0, the team traded Chris Davis and Tommy Hunter to the Baltimore Orioles.

Davis, from Longview, went 1-4 in the game Saturday and has been with the team three different times this season, splitting time between Triple-A Round Rock and the Rangers.

He was batting .250 this year with three home runs and six runs-batted-in during his 27 games with Texas.

Davis was a 5th round pick of the Rangers out of Navarro College in 2006 and was the subject of many trade rumors prior to the season beginning.

Texas also sends Tommy Hunter to the Orioles.

Hunter is 1-1 with a 2.93 ERA in eight relief appearances for the Rangers.

He was a 13-game winner as a starter for the Rangers last year, but strained his right groin muscle at the end of Spring Training, missed three months, and was never able to regain his spot in the rotation.

In return, the Rangers will receive reliever Koji Uehara, who has a 1.02 ERA in his last 32 games, allowing just four earned runs over a 35 1/3 innings-span.

    Moody Magic, a term coined by the Abilene Christian faithful to describe a supposed mystical aura around Moody Coliseum that gives the Wildcats a winning edge, is something the Stephen F.

Wednesday night, the 'Jacks cast a spell of their own - one of the defensive variety - to make sure their intrastate rivals wouldn't obtain a second-straight win in the series.
