Wright returns with a bang, Cuddyer also gets in on fun!!

When the New York Mets got their captain back last night, that in and of itself was a victory. David Wright (Chesapeake) had been on the DL since April, but his return came at a crucial time for the surging Mets, who now lead the Nationals by 5.5 games in the NL East. With a darn good offense already in place, Wright was being counted on to be a team leader, not even the offensive threat he was in his career. 

Apparently, he never got that memo.  

Wright homered in his first at-bat, one of a franchise record 8 Homeruns by the Mets, and scored three runs himself in a 16-7 win. The Mets also set a franchise record with 15 extra-base hits. 

Also getting in on the action was OF Michael Cuddyer (Chesapeake), who hit one of those 8 homers and also added two doubles. 

Cuddyer is now batting .255 for the year, Wright .342.
