With an infield single in the bottom of the third inning against the Pirates, David Wright surpassed Ed Kranepool and set the franchise record with his 1,419th hit of his career.

Here's the list of the team's all-time hits leaders:

Num Player H
1 David Wright 1419
2 Ed Kranepool 1418
3 Jose Reyes 1300
4 Cleon Jones 1188
5 Edgardo Alfonzo 1136
6 Mookie Wilson 1112
7 Bud Harrelson 1029
8 Mike Piazza 1028
9 Darryl Strawberry 1025
10 Howard Johnson 997
11 Jerry Grote 994
12 Keith Hernandez 939

The all-time hits record is a testament to longevity more than it is to skill, but Wright has been one of the best position players in franchise history and is deserving of as many of the team's accolades as he can achieve. With any luck, he will play well into his 30s with the Mets and perhaps one day have a shot at the benchmark 3,000th hit of his career.

Congratulations, David!
