David Wright had two hits Friday night against the Phillies in Citizen’s Bank Park.
He entered the game batting .158 in his last 49 plate appearances.
Nevertheless, Terry Collins told reporters he will continue to hit Wright third in the batting order, despite giving thought to other spots for him in the lineup.
“I don’t want to show any panic,” Collins said. “I know he’s going to bounce out of it.”
Wright has the most home runs of any visiting player at Citizen’s Bank Park.
