Davis homer in 8th lifts Pirates over Cardinals

PITTSBURGH (AP) Ike Davis didn't complain when the Pittsburgh Pirates told him they were going to eat into his playing time by experimenting with Pedro Alvarez at first base. Call it the byproduct of spending four-plus seasons with the New York Mets.

"You kind of get immune to stuff after a while," Davis said. "Kind of my career has been starting, not starting, so I'm used to it."

Davis is simply happy to be in a pennant race at the moment. He provided a needed jolt in a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday night, connecting for a tiebreaking three-run homer off St. Louis reliever Seth Maness in the eighth inning of a potentially costly 5-2 victory.
