      David Wright chips in three-run home run as Mets clinch NL East

      Mets third baseman David Wright went 1 or 3 with a three-run homer, two walks and two runs scored in Saturday's 10-2 victory over the Reds. Wright continues to swing a hot bat after finally having an opportunity for extended playing time during what has been an injury-saddled 2015 campaign. The veteran third baseman has now hit safely in 11 of his last 12 contests, with five multi-hit efforts over that span and nine overall in September. He also has amassed 12 RBI during the month and assuming continued good health, appears poised to make solid contributions to the Mets during the postseason.

      Mets 3B David Wright blasts off in first at-bat of dramatic return

      Too bad Mets third baseman David Wright didn't make his comeback Monday at home. His dramatic entrance would have been far more appropriate closer to Broadway. Wright slammed a home run in his first at-bat after returning from a four-month stint on the disabled list with a back injury. The blast was the first shot in another comeback attempt - that by his team that eventually succeeded in a dismantling of Philadelphia. He was far from done. He singled and scored in the fourth and walked and scored in the sixth. He also committed two errors, but there was no room for the negative on the night of his return to action.
