David Wright Ties Darryl Strawberry for Mets’ Career RBI Mark

April 19 (Bloomberg) -- David Wright drove in three runs to tie Darryl Strawberry for the Mets’ career mark with 733 runs batted in as New York lost 14-6 at Atlanta.

Wright, who is playing with a broken little finger on his right hand, had a two-run double in the third inning yesterday and then tied the franchise mark with an RBI infield single in the fifth.

Wright, 29, is in his ninth year with the Mets. Strawberry spent his first eight seasons with the Mets in a career that also included stints with the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees.

“It’s an honor,” Wright told reporters. “Straw was a great, great player.”

Wright ranks fourth on the franchise list in home runs with 185, trailing Strawberry (252), Mike Piazza (220) and Howard Johnson (192).
