Long Davis homer lifts Pirates over Cardinals 3-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) Ike Davis wasn't able to play meaningful late-season games during his time with the New York Mets. He's making the most of his chance with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

"It's the first time he's been involved in games that have this kind of significance this late in the season," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Wednesday after Davis' long home run keyed a 3-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. "He's showing up to the ballpark ready contribute any way he can."

Davis hit a two-run drive off a speaker above the seats in right-center field in the second inning. A day earlier, Davis had a pinch-hit, tiebreaking, three-run homer in the eighth inning of Pittsburgh's 5-2 win.
