I guess in a way you have to admire and give it to the Murphy’s Law New York Mets. In a season where it would be easy to tank like the Pittsburgh Pirates or Washington Nationals are clearly doing, they’re still going out and battling every day.
Therefore, they were bound to end a five-game losing streak that started on a disastrous day in the Bronx over the past weekend.
Still, the elephant in the room is Pete Alonso. He’s struggling in 2020. Moreover, a .209 average and slugging percentage under .400 isn’t what anyone was hoping for out of the reigning NL Rookie of the Year.
But on Wednesday in the Mets’ 9-4 victory at Camden Yards, Alonso hit home run number seven. It was an absolute bomb to the left field upper deck that towered over the foul pole.
On Thursday, the Mets have an afternoon delight with the Yankees. Surely, they will play out the string in 2020 and likely miss the playoffs in disastrous fashion like usual. However, there’s a few weeks for Pete Alonso to not finish this season as a complete eye sore on his career stat line.
