|Davis, Duda Homer for Mets in Tie with Cardinals
|PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) -- Ike Davis and Lucas Duda each hit home runs as the New York Mets' tied the St. Louis Cardinals 6-6 in 10 innings Saturday.
It was the first homer for Davis, who was diagnosed earlier in spring training with what is likely valley fever, which can cause extreme fatigue. Davis hit a three-run shot off Lance Lynn in the first.
Cardinals center fielder John Jay and third baseman Daniel Descalso each had two-run hits off Mets starter Mike Pelfrey in the third inning.
Pelfrey allowed five runs, four earned, and eight hits in six innings. It was the fourth consecutive start in which the right-hander has given up at least four runs.
