Davis breaks out in clutch, Mets rally past Braves

By MIKE FITZPATRICK

NEW YORK (AP) - Ike Davis busted out of his prolonged slump with a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the New York Mets rallied past the Atlanta Braves 4-2 on Sunday night to end an 8-game losing streak at home.

Shaun Marcum struck out a career-high 12 and Lucas Duda homered for the Mets, who stopped Atlanta's 8-game winning streak and avoided a 3-game sweep. The Braves had won 15 of 18 against New York and five in a row at Citi Field.

Pinch-hitter Justin Turner led off the eighth with a single against Cory Gearrin (1-1). David Wright struck out but Duda punched a ground-rule double to left and John Buck's run-scoring single tied it at 2.

Pinch-hitter Mike Baxter was hit by a pitch to load the bases for Davis, who pulled a two-run single through the right side for a 4-2 Mets lead.
