The last thing David Wright can be accused of since landing his $138 million contract with the Mets is complacency.

Though the All-Star third-baseman hasn’t produced the team’s most eye-popping numbers — that designation is reserved for John Buck, with his 10 homers and 29 RBIs through 25 games — Wright is still the guts of this Mets lineup.

His latest contribution to the highlight reel came Friday when he homered against Braves closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning to tie the game before the Mets rallied for a 7-5 victory in the 10th at Turner Field.

Wright will enter today’s play batting .302 with four homers and 21 RBIs with a .955 OPS. In the Mets’ last three victories, Wright stepped up with important hits.

“He knows that he’s ‘The Guy,’ ” manager Terry Collins said after yesterday’s game between the Mets and Braves was postponed by rain. “His focus and his concentration, if you’re a young player spend some time and get with David Wright so you can find out how he prepares to play.

“If you were around him 1 o’clock or 4 o’clock in the afternoon and see what he does to get ready to play, you would be a better player. He exemplifies the fact he’s a star and exemplifies the fact he’s The Captain.”

It was Wright who delivered the game-tying single with two outs in the ninth inning against the Dodgers on April 24, allowing Jordany Valdespin to win the game in the 10th with a grand slam. In Miami on Wednesday, Wright homered, finishing with three hits, in a 7-6 victory that snapped the Mets’ six-game losing streak.

But his clout against Kimbrel on Friday trumped the others. Kimbrel, the best closer in the National League, hadn’t allowed a home run this season after surrendering only three in 62 2/3 innings last year.
