Wright hits safely, extends streak to 24

PHILADELPHIA -- David Wright has all but dismissed his hitting streak at every turn, de-emphasized it and all but ignored it. And now he has extended it so that it matches the longest in the 45-season-plus history of the Mets.

When the Mets third baseman singled to left field in the second inning on Tuesday night, the streak reached 24 games and put Wright on equal footing with Mike Piazza and Hubie Brooks, who had respective streaks of 24 games in 1999 and 1984.
