Ike Davis needs three hits, and can take as may as six at-bats to do it, to reach .200. And, yes, the first baseman is focused on that figure.

Davis enters Saturday night's game on a six-game hitting streak, during which he is hitting .563 (9-for-16). He has seven RBIs in his past five games.

"You see it," Davis said about his average, currently .191, being displayed on the scoreboard. "It's hard to miss. You don't try to look, but it's next to your name every time you walk up. I'd like to break the Mendoza line once this year. It would be nice to break it. It's a sign I'm getting better if I do break it."
