Late last night when Ike Davis was asked about getting his offense going heading into tonight’s game at Yankee Stadium with its short right field porch, the Mets’ struggling first baseman pointed out an interesting fact. “I’ve never hit a home run in Yankee Stadium,” he said. “Honestly I just want to contribute.” Davis’ woes continued in last night’s 2-1 walk-off win over the Yankees at Citi Field, where he went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and heard boos from the Mets’ faithful. Davis is now in a 4-for-53 funk over his last 16 games. He has struck out 24 times during that span. Despite his struggles, Davis will not be demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas before tonight’s game, The Post has learned. He will be with the Mets in The Bronx. The Mets are scheduled to face a righty in David Phelps tonight, so the left-handed hitting Davis — who batted eighth last night — figures to be in the lineup. Lefty Vidal Nuno is scheduled to start tomorrow night, so Davis could be on the bench for that one.
Another 0-fer for Davis
