Davis downplays hat trick of catches

NEW YORK -- Mets first baseman Ike Davis added another element to his personal highlight video Tuesday night, a third catch-'n-tumble at the first-base dugout railing.

This one produced the final out of an 8-6 victory. And in this one, like the second one last week against the Giants, his teammates broke his fall.

"We're getting better at that," said Alex Cora, the primary spotter in tumbles 2 and 3.

"It's just luck," Davis said Wednesday morning. "You can't practice it. There's no science to it."
