 PHILADELPHIA (AP) -David Wright extending his career-best hitting streak to 24 games Tuesday night, tying the New York Mets' franchise record.
Wright singled leading off the second inning against Philadelphia's Freddy Garcia. The All-Star third baseman has a hit in all 12 games this season, and is the first major leaguer since 1962 to end one season with a hitting streak of 10 games or more and begin the next year with another one, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Hubie Brooks in 1984 and Mike Piazza in 1999 also had 24-game hitting streaks for the Mets. Wright's previous best was a 15-game hitting streak in 2005.
