An article by posted on April 6, 2011

Last night during the Mets 7-1 win over the Phillies, David Wright delivered a two-run single to put the Mets ahead 2-0 in the third inning.

It was Wright’s 90th career game-winning RBI, passing Mike Piazza on the all time list and giving him the most in team history.

It was his second game-winning RBI of this season.

Wright also registered the 15th four-hit game of his career last night and his first since June 24, 2009 vs. St. Louis.

Wright is on the verge of toppling other team records this season.

- 70 more RBI to become the Mets’ all-time leader in RBI.

- 24 more runs to become the Mets’ all-time leader in runs scored.

- 40 hits away from No. 2 on Mets’ all-time leaders in hits, and only 270 hits away from No. 1.
