Ike Davis’s three-run shot off of Braves’ starter Tommy Hanson (1-2) broke a 1-1 tie and Mets’ pitching allowed just five hits on the night in a 6-1 win over the Braves (5-5) at Turner Field.

Davis’ blast, his second homer in as many days, came after an intentional walk to David Wright with two-outs in the sixth-inning.

Jason Bay’s solo homer added some insurance in the seventh, to back a solid outing from Dillon Gee – four hits, one earned and five-K’s in seven innings – who improved to 1-1. Bay also scaled the left-field wall in the fifth-inning to take a solo-shot away from Atlanta’s Jack Wilson (video below).

Jon Rauch and Tim Byrdak took care of the final two innings as New York has won the first four meetings between the two clubs, and bumps the Mets to 7-3.

Wright was 1 for 3 on the night, as his average dipped to .571 – which would be leading the majors if not for a three game absence (broken finger) that has left him shy of the required number of at-bats to qualify among league-leaders.

Met ace Johan Santana (0-1) will face Atlanta’s Randall Delgado on Tuesday night at 7:10.
