With the Mets on a season-high-matching five-game losing streak, David Wright approached Terry Collins postgame and asked to play in Sunday's series finale against the San Francisco Giants. The manager's response: no. Wright, who has started every game this season, was told by Collins he will be sitting Sunday. Eric Campbell instead is expected to start Sunday at third base. After speaking during a pregame meeting Saturday, Wright committed a critical error in the 5-4 loss.
