CLEVELAND, June 15 (UPI) -- Ike Davis homered to cap a five-run fifth-inning rally for New York Tuesday and the Mets held on for a 7-6 win over Cleveland.

Trailing 4-1 entering the frame, the Mets scored when pitcher Justin Masterson (2-6) fielded a sacrifice bunt by Jose Reyes and threw it away, allowing Jeff Francoeur to come home.

Both Reyes and Alex Cora scored on David Wright's single to tie the game and Davis followed with a two-run blast to put New York in front for good, handing the Mets their 16th win in 21 games.

Wright finished 3-for-5 with three RBI for the victors.

Johan Santana (5-3) allowed four runs on seven hits over seven innings, walking two and striking out one to get the win.

Francisco Rodriguez got his 14th save despite allowing a two-run homer in the ninth to pinch-hitter Shelley Duncan.
