When Ike Davis was hitting .158 in June and there was talk of sending him down to the minors, did anyone think he would rebound to have a 30 home run season? Well, regardless of what anyone thought, Davis pulled off the feat with two homers Monday as the Mets took care of the Pirates.
The Mets got on the board in the fourth. David Wright walked and Davis launched an opposite field shot into the Party City Deck to give the Mets a 2-0 lead.
Wright made it 3-0 in the fifth when he singled with runners on first and second. Davis followed with his second home run of the night, a moon shot to right. The three-run blast made it 6-0. Davis’s 30 homers and 88 RBIs both lead the team.
Jenrry Mejia followed his terrible first start with a solid one, going five innings, allowing no runs on four hits. He struck out four and walked two Pirates as he gained his first big league win.
Mets win 6-2, their fourth win in a row.
