Since then, Wright has raised his average 53 points to .311.
He has hit 14 home runs and 63 RBI this season, with six home runs and 29 RBI in June, during which he hit .404.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, courtesy of ESPN.com, Wright is the first player in Mets history to bat at least .400 with 25-or-more RBIs in a calendar month.
…as Keith Hernandez said during the broadcast last night, he has to be the player of the month…
…one thing i’ve noticed with Wright over the last month or so is he is hitting the ball where it’s pitched, consistently driving the ball to all fields with authority… he also has a shorter stroke, which i believe is allowing him to wait just long enough and not commit his hips too early, which has made him less pull happy… he has struggled with the strikeouts, but there has been no better performer at third base whatsoever this season, and that includes the guy who plays across town…
Earlier this week, MLB said Wright was trailing Placido Polanco by 22,000 votes for the National League’s starting third base job at this year’s All-Star Game in Anaheim, and Polanco has recently been placed on the disabled list.
