Davis Makes Debut in Mets Win Against Cubs
NEW YORK (AP) -- Angel Pagan hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the seventh inning for New York's first extra-base hit since Friday and top prospect Ike Davis had an RBI single in his debut for the Mets as they beat the Chicago Cubs 6-1 Monday night.

New York's Jonathon Niese and Chicago's Randy Wells each allowed a run.

Fernando Nieve (1-0) pitched 1 1-3 innings for the win after Niese went 5 2-3 innings and allowed eight hits and an unearned run, striking out seven.

Wells gave up six hits and a run, but the Mets rallied once he left, following Pagan's homer with Jason Bay's RBI double, Davis' single, and a wild pitch by Sean Marshall for a five-run seventh.

Jose Reyes pinch-hit to lead off the inning and was hit by a pitch from James Russell (0-1).
