April 25, 2012 at 10:23 PM

NEW YORK, April 25 (UPI) -- David Wright hit a two-run sixth-inning homer to become New York's all-time RBI leader Wednesday while helping the Mets to a 5-1 win over Miami.

Wright's homer allowed New York to overcome a 1-0 deficit and gave him 735 RBI for his nine-year career, all of it spent with the Mets. He moved past Darryl Strawberry as the team's all-time leader.

New York added three runs in the eighth, two on a pinch-hit double by Mike Baxter.

R.A. Dickey (3-1) limited Miami to a run on three hits in seven innings to get the win. New York has won two in a row after losing five of its previous six.

Mark Buehrle (1-3) took the loss in a seven-inning start, giving up two runs on five hits. The Marlins have dropped four straight.
