David Wright Becomes the Mets All-Time Leader in RBIs

With a sixth inning, two-run home run that would put the Mets up for good last night, the man many refer to as Captain Unclutch, became the Mets all-time leader in RBIs with 735.  In doing so, he stole the honor from former fan favorite, Darryl Strawberry in fitting fashion.  The 400+ footer over the left center-field wall took advantage of a miscue by Jose Reyes, who threw the ball over the firstbaseman's head just moments earlier when trying to turn a double play.

Wright also finds himself amongst the organization's all-time leaders in other categories, such as: batting average, home runs, hits, strikeouts, and runs scored.  In all likelihood, should Wright resign with the Mets and finish his career in Flushing, he would lead the club in each of the categories, as he is well within striking distance.

Congrats to DW!  Keep up the good work!
