Mets Wright, Mets rebound, bash Fish behind Dickey

Quote:
In as many ways as possible, the Mets stressed that Friday's loss to the Marlins was a blip. An aberration. The Mets had won their previous five games, they said Friday night, and possessed more than enough firepower to continue winning.

To back up that line of thinking was an entirely different challenge. But David Wright and the Mets set about doing so in quick order Saturday, rapping out 16 hits in a 9-3 victory over the Marlins. It was their sixth win in seven games, and their first in six days that did not require a late comeback.

Wright made sure of that much, singling in his team's first run in the first inning and adding a solo homer in the third. Wright finished 4-for-6 with a fine defensive play to rob Austin Kearns of a hit in the seventh inning, upping his season average to .402 -- and leading manager Terry Collins to gush afterward that "he's a star."

No Mets player has hit over .400 this late in a season since Cleon Jones in 1969. Asked if he can maintain this pace through September, Wright said simply: "No. I'll be honest with you. No."

But it was hardly a one-man band rocking Marlins Park on Saturday afternoon. The Mets tacked on a third run on Kirk Nieuwenhuis' two-out single in the fourth inning, after Brett Hayes was called for catcher's interference during Andres Torres' at-bat. Then they effectively put the game away against starter Ricky Nolasco in the fifth, when Torres singled home two more runs.
