David Wright became the New York Mets all-time hits leader Wednesday night. In his second at-bat of the game, Wright dribbled an infield single toward the third-base side that wasn't played properly by Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez in the third inning. The official scorer ruled the play as a hit.
The knock was Wright's 1,419th of his career and helped surpass Ed Kranepool on the franchise's all-time list. Wright completed the feat in 1,256 games from 2004-12. Kranepool played in 1,853 games from 1962-79.
Wright now is the Mets' all-time leader in hits, RBI, doubles, total bases and runs scored.
