MIAMI -- David Wright doubled twice, snapping a career-high 20-game streak without an extra-base hit. And he finished 3-for-4 with three RBIs and two runs scored in the Mets' 8-6 win against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday.

Afterward, Wright said he finally feels like he's locked in at the plate, after an exceedingly quiet second half. He now has driven in a run in three straight games.

"It's nice to feel dangerous at the plate," Wright said. "When you're up there and you don't kind of have that feeling, that's what I go by more so than the results. ... It's nice to feel comfortable. It's nice to feel dangerous. And that's kind of what I've felt lately.

"The second half has been difficult. I've been searching and grinding to try to find something that I do feel comfortable with. You put forth the work and you go to the cage and you try this and you try that. To finally feel something click a little bit and carry it over into the game, it feels good and it's a positive."
