Setting Chicago on fire

The Mets offense exploded yesterday against the Cubs with a season-high 17 runs. Here’s a look at the hitting highlights:

l Daniel Murphy, who had not homered since July 16, 2011, hit two home runs. He hit a 2-run shot in the fourth inning and a solo blast in the fifth.

l David Wright, whose 15-game hitting streak was snapped Tuesday, drove in a season-high five runs, the most RBIs he has had in a game since Sept. 16 last year.

l Ike Davis went 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBIs, bringing his average to .201, the first time all season it’s been higher than .200.


Scott Hairston

l Scott Hairston’s sixth-inning grand slam was the second of his career.

l Those four Mets combined drove in all 17 runs.
