Pop-up puts Ike Davis in 'panic mode'
Ike Davis admitted that heading toward the pitcher's mound to chase a 10th-inning pop-up hit by Ramon Hernandez put him in "panic mode in the head."
It was at Coors Field last May 10 that Davis went after a similar pop-up and injured an ankle in an innocent-looking collision with David Wright. Davis missed the rest of the season.
This time Wright was nowhere near Davis, who made the catch. "I heard, 'Ike, Ike,' which last year I didn't hear," Davis said. "That was comforting."
