JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — Rookie 1B Ike Davis hit two HRs Friday night to help the New York Mets defeat the San Francisco Giants 6-4.

Davis, 23, hit solo home runs in the 2nd (vide0) and 4th (video) innings. His 9th-inning walk turned into a run when Rod Barajas followed with a walk-off HR to win the game.

Davis also contributed a key defensive play in the top of the 9th inning. With the score tied 4-4 on a pinch-hit home run by John Bowker, the Giants had men on first and third bases with two outs when Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval hit a pop fly in foul territory. Davis nabbed the ball while carthwheeling into the Mets’ dugout to end the threat (see video).
