Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - The Milwaukee Brewers have rewarded left- handed pitcher Doug Davis with a two-year contract extension through the 2006 season, it was announced on Tuesday. Financial terms were not revealed.

Davis has been a major contributor to the Brewers' surprising performance this season, as the club is just 6 1/2 games out of the wild card spot through games of July 26. "We felt that Doug has shown the consistency since he came to us last season to earn this opportunity for a multi-year contract," said general manager Doug Melvin. "We believe that he will continue to be a strong part of our pitching staff. This also affords the club some cost certainty by moving Doug out of the arbitration process." The 28-year-old Davis is turning in his most productive season on the major league level, as he leads the Milwaukee pitching staff and is tied atop the National League with 22 starts. He is currently 9-9 with a 3.99 ERA in 135 1/3 innings of work, and has struck out 100 batters against just 45 walks. Davis is currently enjoying his second tour of duty with the Brewers. He debuted in 1999 with Texas and stayed with the Rangers before joining Milwaukee in 2003. He returned to Texas for one game later that season before moving on to the Toronto Blue Jays. He opened the 2004 campaign back in Milwaukee. In 115 career games, including 95 starts, Davis owns a 38-37 record with a 4.61 ERA. Davis' signing is the latest effort by Melvin to stabilize the team's future. Keith Ginter, Wes Helms, Geoff Jenkins and Scott Podsednik have all been signed to multi-year contracts.
