Ike Davis returns! His three-run homer in the eighth inning gave the Mets some insurance runs in their third come-from-behind victory — this time 10-6 — over the Phillies as they swept a series in Philadelphia for the first time since 2006. Davis also had a double and scored another run. Prior to the game, there had a few pieces about how poorly he’s doing as well as calls by pundits to send him down to AAA.
Michael Schwimer did not appear in the game for the Phillies.
For the second time in the Brewers’ series against the Cincinnati Reds, a Ryan Braun homer accounted for his team’s only tally. Milwaukee dropped a close one, 2-1. Braun also had a single.
Craig Breslow retired the only batter he faced in the Diamondbacks’ 7-2 loss to the Cardinals. Breslow entered the game with two out in the top of the ninth after the previous reliever — J.J. Putz (hold the jokes) — allowed four runs on five hits.
Danny Valencia extended his hitless streak to 0-25 — the entire month of May, so far — following four more trips to the plate in the Twins’ 6-2 loss to the Angels. Valencia did, however, drive in one of the runs with a ground out. Jason Marquis gets the start tonight as the Toronto Blue Jays come into town.
Rain washed out Ian Kinsler, Scott Feldman, and the Rangers’ game against the Orioles.
Kevin Youkilis remains on the disabled list.
