Ike Davis debuted with the Las Vegas 51s on Tuesday night and faced similar struggles but also marked improvements. The 26-year-old Davis struck out twice in five plate appearances but also drew two walks, one of which was imperative in leading the 51s to an 8-6 victory over Tacoma. Davis stepped to the plate in the bottom of the ninth and represented the tying run after Andrew Brown drew a bases-loaded walk. After working the count full, Davis took the free pass to lead way for 21-year-old prospect Wilmer Flores. Flores proceeded to drive Brown in with a single before Zach Lutz put the game to bed with a three-run walk-off home run. Mike Baxter and Robert Carson also made their debuts for Las Vegas and fared much differently than Davis. Baxter reached base three times and recorded two hits in five plate appearances, but Carson almost let the game get away from the team. Carson entered the game trying to secure a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the ninth, but surrendered a bases-clearing double. Ultimately, none of his runs were earned but he was credited with the blown save. While Davis will likely see several weeks of action in Las Vegas, there is no official timetable on his return.
