DENVER (AP) - Mets first baseman Ike Davis left in the fifth inning of New York’s 4-3 win over Colorado on Tuesday night after he strained his left calf when he appeared to trip over third baseman David Wright’s foot as the two closed in on a pop up by the Rockies’ Troy Tulowitzki.
Wright hung on to the ball near the mound for the second out of the fourth inning as Davis tumbled to the ground. Davis bounced up quickly but was limping noticeably. He remained in the game for the final out of the inning, but was replaced in the field to start the fifth.
Davis, whose single in the first inning drove in the Mets’ first two runs, was scheduled to be re-evaluated Wednesday.
“I know he’s hurting. When he came out, he was hurting bad,” said Mets manager Terry Collins, who doubted that Davis would be available for Wednesday’s series finale.
Davis wasn’t sure what happened on the play.
“We didn’t really collide that hard,” Davis said. “I think I just rolled my ankle or something. At the time, there was a lot of pain everywhere. They’re going to see how I feel (Wednesday) morning, and if it’s still bothering me, then maybe an MRI.”
With Davis out of the lineup, Daniel Murphy moved from second base to first, and Justin Turner came into the game to play second.
