David Wright clubbed a two-run homer off Yordano Ventura in the first inning on Friday, helping to lead the Mets to a victory over the Royals in Game 3 of the World Series.

After the Mets fell behind 1-0 in the first inning, the longtime captain gave his squad a huge jolt after Curtis Granderson's leadoff single, turning the tide of the game, and perhaps the series, with one mighty swing. He added a two-run single in the sixth inning, increasing the Mets' advantage to 8-3. Wright finished the evening 2-for-5 with four RBI and is now batting .196/.327/.304 with seven RBI in the playoffs.

David Wright delivered a clutch two-out, two-run single in the seventh inning on Friday, propelling the Mets to a 3-1 victory over the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLDS in Los Angeles.

The Mets struggled to get anything going offensively against Clayton Kershaw, but were able to force the left-hander from the game in the seventh after loading the bases on three walks. That's where Wright stepped to the plate against Pedro Baez and lined a single to center field, plating a pair of runs that proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk.

David Wright went 2-for-5 with two singles and a run scored in Friday's 10-inning loss to the Red Sox.

Wright missed four months with spinal stenosis, but has come back seemingly as though nothing had happened. In the four games he's played since his return from the disabled list, he's 6-for-20 with a home run, three RBI and six runs scored. There's fantasy value here, particularly with the Mets playing well on offense.
