Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Ike Davis hit two homers and knocked in five
runs to lead the New York Mets to a 6-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on
Monday at Citi Field.
Davis smacked a two-run blast and a three-run shot in consecutive innings for
the Mets, who have won four games in a row after losing five straight.
Making his second start of the season, Jenrry Mejia (1-1) tossed five
scoreless for New York, but manager Terry Collins capped the 22-year-old's
night after throwing 96 pitches. He allowed just four hits and struck out four
to earn his first major league win.
Kyle McPherson's (0-2) start lasted just 4 1/3 innings after putting two
runners on in the fifth. He surrendered Davis' first homer and was charged
with four runs on four hits. He struck out three.
Garrett Jones and Jose Tabata each drove in a run for Pittsburgh, which has
dropped a woeful 18 of its last 23 games.
