Remembering Mets History: David Wright Become All Time Mets RBI Leader

Wednesday April 25th, 2012: A crowd of 20,683 came out to Citi Field tonight to see Terry Collins Mets (10-8) take on Ozzie Guillen's Miami Marlins (7-10). Tonight's starting pitchers were the Mets R.A. Dickey & the Marlins veteran, Mark Buehrle.

But tonight's game would be highlighted by a Mets milestone, as David Wright would pass Darryl Strawberry for most RBIs in Mets history with 735.

Starting Lineups

The Mets were down 1-0 in the 6th inning, when Kirk Nieuwenhuis led off the inning getting hit by a pitch. With two outs, David Wright stepped in & hit a two run HR. The two runs batted in gave him the all time Mets lead. Wright would finish his Mets career with 970 RBIs.

He also tops the Mets all time leader board with hits (1777) runs (949) doubles (390) walks (762) strike outs (1292) & at bats (5998). Strawberry is still first in HRs with 252 & Wright second with 242.

In the 9th, Wright would score another un, as Mike Baxter's two run double drove him in. Lucas Duda also had an RBI that inning, capping off the Mets 5-1 win.
