New York Mets manager Terry Collins indicated that 1B Ike Davis has been getting hurt by outside pitches this year. "So we've tried to get him to where he covers the outside part of the plate. Ike has moved up on the plate to take away the outside pitch. And I thought last night, the two balls he hit to left field, were the start. If he starts going that way to where he's going to use more of the field to hit, he's got some better opportunities to drive some runs in. I hope the home run gets him going also." Davis went 1-for-4 with a homer Thursday, April 25, but he also struck out two times.
