New York Mets Top Chicago Cubs 6-1 in Ike Davis's Debut

Frankie RioloContributor IApril 20, 2010

After a rough road trip, the Mets came back to Citi Field and took care of business as they rolled over the Cubs 6-1.

Jon Neise pitched decently. Though he gave up eight hits and walked three, he managed to strike out seven and make it through 5 2/3 innings.

Fernando Nieve , who relieved Neise in the sixth, ended with the win, as the Mets would all but seal the deal in the seventh inning with a five run rally. Angel Pagan's two-run homer was the spark that got the team rolling.

Ike Davis did not disappoint either. The 23-year-old collected his first career hit in the second inning on a broken bat single over the head of Cubs second baseman Jeff Baker . He would later knock in a run during the seventh inning rally.

The series continues tomorrow night. Mike Pelfrey (2-0, 1.29) goes for the Mets as staff ace Carlos Zambrano (1-1, 9.45) goes for the Cubs.
