"I was just trying to put together a good at-bat to start the game", Alonso said.
The Mets will send their ace, right hander Jacob deGrom (4-6, 3.26 ERA), to the mound this afternoon. deGrom was almost untouchable against the Atlanta Braves last Tuesday, giving up two runs in 8.1 innings to earn his fourth win of the season. Strawberry had 26 homers in the 1983 campaign and was named the National League Rookie of the Year.
As for other home run records Alonso could potentially break, the NL record for home runs in a season by a rookie is 39, which was also set by Bellinger, and the Mets team record for home runs in a season is 41, both of which he is projected to break. Alonso crushed his 27th homer in only his 77th game this season. Wheeler went seven innings, surrendering one run on five hits with five strikeouts against Chicago. The home run was tied for his second-longest of the season. At his current rate, he is projected to slug 53 by the end of the 2019 season, which would more than double the Mets rookie home run record as it now stands. Tomas Nido's leadoff homer gave the Mets a 2-1 lead before deGrom matched Hamels with an RBI single.
