David Wright’s two homers and five RBI’s helped R.A. Dickey to his National League leading 13th win as the Mets salvaged the final game of a three game series, 9-5 against the Nationals on Thursday.

Ike Davis had two hits including a homer, as he and Wright share the team lead with 14 dingers.

Dickey (13-1), who was coming off back-to-back outing of giving up five earned runs, surrendered four runs – three earned- on ten hits, while striking out five in 7 1/3 innings. The knuckler won his 11th consecutive decision and hasn’t been charged with a loss since April 18th.

Ruben Tejada, Andres Torres and Justin Turner each had two hits as well.

Michael Morse drove in two runs for the Nats, who got four hits out of their third basemen – Ryan Zimmerman had two hits before Mark DeRosa replaced him and picked up a pair of hits.
