The New York Mets defeated the Chicago Cubs on Saturday by the score of 7-3. The win improved the Mets to 59-65, fourth in the National League East. The Mets made the most of four hits and three walks, getting two RBI each from Juan Lagares and Wilmer Flores. There was some concern on the injury front when third baseman David Wright left the game in the eighth inning with a sore shoulder.

Adam Rubin, who covers the Mets for, tweeted the following on Wright's diagnosis.
Wright got hit by a pitch in the sixth inning and remained in the game until the eighth. he went 0-for-2 and a run scored.  Wright has been hampered by a bruised rotator cuff for a large portion of the season and this latest injury doesn't help matters.  There is no word as to how much time, if any, Wright will miss.

Wright, in his 11th Major League season, is batting .273 with eight home runs and 56 RBI this season.  In 1,490 career games, Wright has a batting average of .299 with 230 home runs and 932 RBI.
