Davis broke a 2-2 tie in the 8th inning with a two-run single that powered the Mets over the Braves in the series-finale at Citi Field, 4-2.
The hit came at the right time.
With a demotion to Las Vegas looming, Ike's hit came before a national audience on Sunday Night Baseball. He was on base three times, twice on a hit and once on a walk. He finished what John Buck started in the 8th, and helped preserve a fantastic pitching performance from Shaun Marcum.
Marcum pitched 7 innings, striking out 12. He allowed 4 hits and gave up two runs, both of them when Dan Uggla took Marcum's 100th pitch deep.
Bobby Parnell came in for his 7th save of the season, striking out 2 in the 9th inning.
