Food poisoning keeps Ike sidelined
NEW YORK -- Chalking Saturday's bout of food poisoning up to some bad seafood, first baseman Ike Davis was available to play against the Yankees on Sunday but was out of the starting lineup for a second straight game.

Manager Terry Collins classified Davis as "75 percent" healthy, which was reason enough to keep him on the bench -- especially with tough Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia on the mound. Davis added that he felt somewhat weak but was more than able to contribute off the bench.

"I feel better now," Davis said on Sunday afternoon. "I haven't eaten anything, really, but as far as being able not to throw up is a good thing."

If nothing else, Davis gave the Mets a valuable pinch-hitting threat in Sunday's Subway Series finale. He has been one of the team's hottest hitters this month, batting .351 with three home runs and 15 RBIs over his last 12 games.
