Jeff McNeil was receiving some awfully high praise following the Mets' 4-3, 10-innning win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.
The Mets second baseman went 4-fot-5 with a run and RBI in the victory and raised his batting average to .370 -- second-best in the National League behind Los Angeles Dodgers' Cody Bellinger at .434.
Pete Alonso, who hit the walk-off sacrifice fly on Tuesday, likened his teammate to one of the best to play the game.
"It's unbelievable," Alonso said. "He looks like Ted Williams out there."
McNeil was almost speechless when told of the comparison and started chuckling.
"That's pretty awesome," he said. "That's oen of the best hitters out there. I'll definitely take that compliment."
