Astros Lose On Walk-Off Homer

NEW YORK (August 26, 2012) -- Ike Davis hit his second homer of the day with one out in the ninth inning soon after Lucas Duda cut a runner down at the plate, lifting the New York Mets to their first series win at home since early July, 2-1 over the Houston Astros on Sunday.

Mets rookie Jeremy Hefner took a shutout into the ninth before giving up a tying double to Marwin Gonzalez.

Gonzalez then tried to score on Ben Francisco's single. But Duda, recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, made a strong throw home from his new position in left field.

Davis' drive off Wilton Lopez (5-2) just cleared the top of the right-field wall - and the glove of a leaping Francisco - for the second game-winning hit of his career.
