MIAMI, July 29 (UPI) -- Ike Davis capped a seventh-inning rally with a go-ahead RBI double Monday and the New York Mets came alive late to overcome Miami 6-5.

New York was trailing 5-3 with one out in the seventh when Eric Young collected a double against Mike Dunn and came home when Daniel Murphy followed with a run-scoring hit.

A.J. Ramos (3-4) took the mound and retired David Wright, but Murphy (three RBI) stole second, went to third on a wild pitch and came home with the tying run on Marlon Byrd's 3-2 liner into center field.

Davis then delivered the decisive blow, smacking a pitch down the right field line for an RBI double.

David Aardsma (2-0) earned the victory, while Josh Edgin and LaTroy Hawkins combined for two scoreless innings and Bobby Parnell racked up his 21st save as the Mets broke a five-game skid against Miami in the opener of a four-game series.

Jeff Mathis knocked in two runs for the Marlins.
