Mets: Pete Alonso Hits Ball Out of Wrigley

In the Mets absolute blowout loss at Wrigley Field on Wednesday night, there was a little reason for pause and optimism.

First, before things got out of hand; Francisco Lindor hit his first home run as a Met. Then, Pete Alonso hit the big blast that everyone was tweeting about.

It was the 72nd home run of Alonso’s career. While it may seemed another home run for Alonso in which he hit very far and very hard, he’s doing it at an alarming rate more than other big league regulars.

In the end, the Mets got pounded and the blast mattered very little. Now they have dropped two straight games to the Cubs at Wrigley and look to salvage the series tomorrow night.

By the way, this was Alonso’s third home run of the young season.
