• Ruben Tejada is 2-for-12 entering Wednesday since returning from the disabled list with a right quad strain. Ronny Cedeno has had more success in his return from injury, notching a hit in all four games since being activated June 22.
"Ronny's been playing a little bit longer than Ruben has," Collins said. "What it shows you is the speed of the game here. You can't reenact it at any level. Last week, when I called down when Ronny was down there, I told him the importance of putting some effort into the rehab."
• David Wright's hitting streak ended at 15 games after going 0-for-3 with a walk Tuesday. Wright is one home run shy of tying Howard Johnson for third place in club history with 192.
• Entering Wednesdays series finale, the Mets are 18-10 during day games.
