Ike Davis went 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks and a run scored during the Mets’ 5-2 win against the Padres last night.
“I finally caught up to one,” Davis said afterwards. “Obviously, it felt good.”
Davis’s home run followed a home run from Marlon Byrd, marking the second time this season the Mets have gone back-to-back.
It was Davis’ first home run since July 26, a span of 71 plate appearances – he now has two homers since being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas.
After reaching base three more times last night, Davis improved his on-base percentage to .326 for the season – since returning from Las Vegas on July 5, Davis has a .462 OBP and .911 OPS with ten doubles and ten RBI in 130 plate appearances over 36 games.
Davis now has seven extra-base hits and a .574 on-base percentage in 54 plate appearances over 15 games during the month of August.
