When J.D. Davis took a Trevor Bauer fastball over the wall in right for a solo homer in the sixth inning Sunday, he became the fifth Mets player to hit his 20th home run of the season.
That marks the first time in franchise history the team has had five players crack the 20-homer plateau.
Unsurprisingly, Pete Alonso reached the mark first, notching his 20th home run of the season on June 4. Michael Conforto, who incidentally also homered on Sunday, hit his 20th of the year on July 28.
Jeff McNeil had 16 homers coming into the month of September but has gotten his power stroke doing, with seven homers since the final month of the regular season began. He hit his 20th of the season as part of a two-homer game on Sept. 11.
Coincidentally, Todd Frazier also hit two homers that day, his second also being his 20th of the year.
With Wilson Ramos and Amed Rosario stuck on 14 homers, it appears the franchise record will remain at five players with 20 home runs.
