Mets Mets pull caper at The Bank with late comeback

Quote:
With injuries piling up around them, the Mets have depended upon David Wright this season to reach base, hit for power, field his position and yes, even play hurt. But until this week he had done it mostly in orthodox fashion, with his bat and with his glove.

Wright's more creative side surfaced in the seventh inning Tuesday, when his heads-up baserunning allowed the tying run to score in a 7-4 victory over the Phillies. It marked the Mets' league-leading 10th comeback win in 30 games, and their second in two nights at Citizens Bank Park.

"It worked out to our benefit," Wright said. "And we got a little lucky, also."

After the Mets put two runners on base while trailing by two runs in the seventh, Wright hit an RBI single to right, where Hunter Pence fielded the ball and fired it up the line. But as Kirk Nieuwenhuis was rounding third base, Wright wandered halfway between first and second and purposely caught himself in a rundown.

He hustled to avoid tag after tag after tag, until Nieuwenhuis finally strayed far enough from safety for Orr to try to gun him down. But Orr's throw skidded into the area beyond third base for an error, allowing Nieuwenhuis to score easily with the tying run.

"Just good baserunning by David," was how Nieuwenhuis described it.
