Yesterday, Ike Davis delivered the game-winning RBI single in the 11th, as part of a 3 for 6 day.
Over his last three games, Davis is 5 for 12 with two walks, a double and an RBI. Overall, he is batting .169 with three homers and 8 RBI.
“It’s going to be a slow process,” Davis told reporters after the game. “You’re not going to wake up tomorrow and I’m going to be hitting .300. It’s going to take every game where I’m grinding it out, and hopefully in a couple of weeks, my average will be back to normal.”
During yesterday’s broadcast, Keith said Ike told him he felt like he was standing too upright at the plate, and as a result, his hands were dropping. Now that he feels his hands are in a better spot, I think he trusts them a little more, thus he’s not inclined to lunge the way we were seeing the first three weeks of the season. There’s no questioning the results, and headed to another park that favors hitters could help Ike continue his quest off the interstate. It’d be nice to see Ike continue using all fields as he did yesterday, and take aim at that short porch in left at Minutemaid.
