Jeremy Hefner (2-6, 4.99 ERA), who was supposed start on Wednesday, will now start Thursday’s makeup game. It’s Hefner’s 11th start but first since Sept. 8, when the rookie right-hander gave up five runs on eight hits in just 2 2/3 innings in an 11-3 loss to the Braves.
David Wright is seven hits shy of passing Ed Kranepool for most in Mets history. Derek Jeter, Todd Helton and Michael Young are the only three active players to lead their franchise in hits.
Daniel Murphy Is hitting .380 (19-50) with four doubles, two home runs and seven RBI in September. His .380 average is the second-best in the NL this month. Murphy is one double shy of tying his career-high (38) in 2010.
