PHILADELPHIA (AP) — David Wright homered despite a broken finger as the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 on Saturday.

Wright was back in the New York Mets lineup after missing three games with a broken right pinkie.

The five-time All-Star third baseman was in his usual No. 3 spot in the batting order for Saturday’s game against the Phillies. Wright hurt his finger diving back to a base Monday night.

The Mets are 4-0 with Wright, who is hitting .583 (7 for 12) with a homer and four RBIs.
