On Saturday night, Ike Davis equaled a franchise record and became the ninth player in team history to hit three home runs in a game. The feat was last accomplished by Carlos Beltran on May 12, 2011 at Colorado. The Arizona native, has four home runs in his last two games and will attempt to tie the club record for home runs in three straight games set by Frank Thomas who hit six in that span between August 1-3 during the 1962 season. Davis now has 20 home runs, a new career high that topped his 19 home runs rookie season in 2010. His 20 home runs are the most in the majors by a first baseman. Before the start of the Arizona series, I asked some of our writers the following question: Is Ike Davis still the first baseman of the future for the Mets? Dan – Yes Ike still has the potential to be our first baseman of the future. He is still extremely young and has a ton of power to go along with a great glove. He had a first half sophomore slump, just look at a guy like Hosmer as an example
