Recap:
Ike Davis hit a pair of homers, including the game-winning blast in the ninth, and the New York Mets edged the Houston Astros, 2-1, in the finale of a three-game set at Citi Field.

The Mets led 1-0 entering the ninth, but Houston was able to tie it up when Marwin Gonzalez doubled to left field to score Jose Altuve. Altuve hit a pinch-hit single then stole second before Gonzalez sent one down the left field line. Lucas Duda made a sliding attempt but couldn't hold on, allowing Altuve to score easily.

Ben Francisco followed with a single to left but Gonzalez was cut down at the plate after Duda delivered a strike and Kelly Shoppach blocked the plate.

Bobby Parnell (3-3) picked up the win after recording the final two outs in the ninth.
