Wright Sets Streak And Still Going

Charlie Nobles at Mets.com, writes about David Wright and him setting the Mets consecutive hitting streak:

David Wright, who set the Mets' all-time hitting streak with a single in his second at-bat in Wednesday night's game, said the 25-game hitting streak is of no concern to him.

"It's not a big deal at all," the third baseman said before the game against the Marlins at Dolphin Stadium. "It's something that's not important to me. I just go play the game. Whatever happens, I'm not going to lose any sleep about it.

Wright has hit in 13 straight games this season and 12 from last season. Hubie Brooks (1984) and Mike Piazza (1999) also had 24-game hitting streaks, both in a single season. So Wright's record will have an asterisk, meaning it required two seasons.
