Do you remember when the New York Mets were looking to trade veteran first baseman Ike Davis during the off-season? Yeah, I’m pretty sure they’re happy that they haven’t let him go, at least not yet.
Today against the Cincinnati Reds, Davis was called from the bench to pinch hit during the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded and no out. All he had to was either tie the ball game with a sacrifice fly, simple right? Davis took it a couple steps further and sent New York Mets fans home happy.
Davis was down a strike in the count early on before being delivered a 73 mile per hour curveball that hung well over the plate. With one swing of the bat, Davis unloaded the bases on a pinch hit walk-off home run to defeat the Cincinnati Reds by the score of 6-3.
What a way to end a ball game. Hats off to Ike Davis and his late inning heroics.
