Jose Reyes, who left Wednesday's game in the first inning after his bunt single, won the NL batting title with a .337 average when the Brewers Ryan Braun went 0-for-4 later that night and finished at .332. The Mets released a statement from Reyes: 

“I just want to say I’m humbled and honored to win the batting title. It means so much to my family and my country, the Dominican Republic. I have been through a lot over the past few years so this really means a lot to me. It’s also very special to be the first Mets player to win a batting title. There have been so many great players throughout our history. I want to thank Terry Collins, my coaches and all my teammates and of course all the Mets fans who have always supported me and been behind me 100 percent.”
