Wright Named NL Player of the Week
Mets third baseman David Wright has been named the National League Player of the Week.
In eight games last week, Wright led the National League with 13 hits and five doubles while tying for second in the league with seven RBI and 21 total bases. His .500 batting average (13-for-26) and .594 on-base percentage both ranked third among qualifying National Leaguers last week, while his .808 slugging percentage ranked fifth.
After getting off to a slow start, most likely due to playing with an injured back, Wright has bounced back to hit .325/.398/.535 with six home runs and 31 RBI since the All Star break in 151 at-bats.
Wright extended his hitting streak to nine games last night and he now has five RBI over his last five games and is batting .460 (17-37) with five doubles, two home runs and nine RBI over his last 10 contests.
This is his third career weekly award, having won previously for the weeks ending August 28, 2005 and June 18, 2006.
