In the 10th inning of the Mets' eventual win over the Royals on Friday, New York third baseman David Wright strained his right hamstring while beating out an infield single. He was promptly removed from the game and replaced by pinch-runner Zack Wheeler (!).

After the game, manager Terry Collins said the news on Wright would be "most likely not all that good" (source: Adam Rubin via Twitter). Wright is slated for an MRI on Saturday, after which he'll address the media.

Of course, the injury didn't stop Wright from congratulating his 'mates as they made their way up the tunnel following the walk-off win ...

This season, Wright's hitting .308/.391/.506, which is good for a career-high OPS+ of 153.

Earlier in the night, Wright clouted his 220th career home run, which ties him with Mike Piazza for second place on the all-time Mets list. Darryl Strawberry is the leader with 252 during his time in Queens.
