Third baseman David Wright blasted a two-run homer in Sunday’s 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins and now stands just four hits away from breaking Ed Kranepool’s franchise record of 1,418 hits. However in light of the team’s poor second half, he’s finding it difficult to find any enjoyment from his personal achievements.
“I think R.A. would agree with me but it’s tough to pat yourself on the back and enjoy these individual accolades when the team has struggled the way we have in the second half,” Wright said on Sunday. “It’s extremely bittersweet and difficult to enjoy, no question. Ultimately, you go out there for one reason and that’s to win and we haven’t able to do that in the second half. I’ll be able to enjoy the personal accomplishments after I’m done playing, not while playing because I don’t think that’s the way that I’m programmed. It’s tough to be satisfied with what you do individually when the team has struggled the way we have.”
