Mets 1B Davis sits with possible food poisoning

The New York Mets said first baseman Ike Davis was out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Yankees possibly because of food poisoning.

Davis hit a three-run homer during the Mets' five-run first inning on Friday night, sparking them to a 6-4 win in the series opener.

He is batting .191 with eight homers, 36 RBI and an on-base percentage of .276 in 68 games this season.
