Davis’ Homer Keys Mets’ Victory Over Braves

The Mets snapped Atlanta’s five-game winning streak and added to their three-game sweep of the Braves in New York to start the season.

With the game tied at 1 in the sixth, Atlanta intentionally walked hot-hitting David Wright with two outs to get to Davis, who was batting just .118. The strategy backfired when Tommy Hanson (1-2) hung a 2-2 pitch and Davis drove it into the right-field seats.

Gee (1-1) was never in much trouble. Atlanta put together a couple of hits and a walk in the second, leading to its only run on Jack Wilson’s RBI groundout.
