Davis era begins with win

Posted: April 19, 2010 in Mets

Rookie first baseman Ike Davis made his presence felt in his first big-league game, going 2-for-4 with an RBI single as the Mets beat the Cubs at Citi Field tonight, 6-1.
Angel Pagan, who led off tonight after several games where clueless Jerry Manuel had him batting eighth, belted a two-run homer to break a 1-1 tie in the seventh. The blast highlighted a five-run frame against the inept Cubs bullpen.
Jason Bay showed signs of breaking out of his slump, going 2-for-3 with an RBI double.
Jon Niese did a nice job of pitching out of trouble, going 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball. He struck out seven and walked three in his best outing of the season. Fernando Nieve picked up the win, and Jenrry Mejia finished the game with two hitless innings. The Mets are now 5-8 and have three more games with the Cubs. Let’s hope they finally break the season-opening string of winning one game every series.
Mike Pelfrey takes the hill tomorrow night against Carlos Zambrano.
