Jon Niese had his 20th consecutive outing without allowing more than 3 runs, and Eric Campbell had three hits filling in for David Wright – who’s MRI says “bruised rotator cuff” – leading the Mets to a 5-3 win over the Pirates.

Niese went 6 innings allowing 3 runs on 7 hits and striking out 5. Campbell had two 2Bs and an RBI, Eric Young stole 3 bases, and Jenrry Mejia closed out his 8th save with a clean ninth.


Campbell was filling in for Wright, the seven-time All-Star who returned to New York to undergo an MRI Saturday on his sore left shoulder.

After the game, the Mets said Wright had a bruised left rotator cuff. He will be treated with anti-inflammatories before being reevaluated on Monday. For now, the Mets think Wright can avoid a trip to the DL.

“They want to see if it feels better after a couple days’ rest,” assistant general manager John Ricco said. “If he’s still feeling the same, we’ll reassess it at that time.”
