MIAMI (AP) – David Wright came off the disabled list swinging, and his two RBI doubles Friday helped the New York Mets beat the Florida Marlins 7-6.
The five-time All-Star was activated before the game after being sidelined for two months with a back injury. He doubled home the Mets’ first run in the first inning, then put them ahead to stay with a run-scoring double in the eighth. Wright also scored twice.
Daniel Murphy drove in two runs with a single and a double for the Mets. Jose Reyes had two hits to keep his NL-leading average at .349.
Florida’s Emilio Bonifacio extended his hitting streak to 21 games and later scored from first on a single. But he and Steve Cishek committed errors that helped the Mets score two unearned runs.
