Wright Helps Mets Bounce Back, 9-3 Over Miami
David Wright pushed his batting average to .402 with four hits and three RBI’s helping the Mets rebound from Friday’s ninth inning loss, and topple the red-hot Miami Marlins 9-3 on Saturday afternoon at Marlins Park.
Wright’s three singles and fourth home run, a solo shot of Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco, were part of a 16-hit day for New York, who also got three hits apiece from Lucas Duda and Daniel Murphy.
Miami, which lost for just the second time in the last eleven games, had 13 hits, including four from ex-Met Jose Reyes.
R.A. Dickey upped his record to 5-1, allowing nine hits over six innings, but just two runs.
Nolasco (4-1) suffered his first loss, giving up six runs in 4 2/3 innings.
The Mets (19-14) and Marlins (17-16) wrap up their series in Sunday afternoon at 1:10.
