• Mets demote Davis, 2 others after being swept

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jun 9, 2013
    Fed up after getting swept by the Miami Marlins for a second straight weekend, the New York Mets demoted three players to Triple-A Las Vegas after Sunday's defeat: first baseman Ike Davis, outfielder Mike Baxter and left-handed reliever Robert Carson. While the Mets spent the weekend losing a six hour, 25-minute, 20-inning game on Saturday and a three hour, 35 minute, 10-inning games on Sunday mustering a total of five runs in the process Davis spent a fair share of his time riding the pine, in part due to his utter ineptitude against lefties. Arencibia and Jeff Keppinger have lower on-base percentages; nobody has a lower slugging percentage, an embarrassing stat for a player whose power is his calling card.
