David Wright Breaks All-Time Mets Record For Hits!
CONGRATULATIONS TO DAVID WRIGHT!
With an infield single in the bottom of the third inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates, David Wright surpassed Ed Kranepool to become the new all-time hits leader for the New York Mets.
After breaking Kranepool’s mark with hit number 1,419 of his career, he added to that in his next at-bat with another single to put him at 1,420.
Wright is now one of just four active players to lead his franchise’s all-time hits list, along with Derek Jeter of the Yankees, Todd Helton of the Rockies and Michael Young of the Rangers. He also leads the Mets in career doubles, extra-base hits, walks, RBI and runs scored.
