The St. Lucie Mets won big on this night in May 1991 and Brian Davis helped them get there, according to The Palm Beach Post.

Davis picked up two hits and three RBI for St. Lucie as they beat Sarasota by a score of 8-2, The Post wrote.

Though he had a good night, Davis' five-season career neared its end. He was released by the end of the month. He never made AA.

Davis' career began in 1987, signed by the White Sox as a free agent out of Cleveland High School in Texas.

Davis started with the White Sox in the rookie Gulf Coast League. He hit .219 in 42 games. He then returned to the GCL and saw single-A Tampa in 1988. He hit .250 between them.

He played at short-season Utica and at single-A South Bend in 1989. He then moved to the Mets in the minor league draft.

Davis played 1990 at single-A Columbia. He hit .273 in 111 games and stole 28 bases. He then started 1991 at St. Lucie. He got into 22 games and hit .222 to end his career.
