Wrapped into Zack Wheeler's absolutely dominant performance Tuesday night for the Mets was the fact that he accomplished something no other pitcher has done this season.
While dismantling the Phillies with his arm and bat, Wheeler became the first pitcher this season to throw a pitch of 100 MPH or more and hit a pitch 100 MPH or more.
As he was regularly reaching the high 90s with his fastball and touching 100, Wheeler also mixed in a double and this laser of a homer to left-center field -- the first of his career:
According to MLB Stats, the Mets are the first National League team since at least 1908 to get home runs from three different pitchers in their first 25 games.
Aside from Wheeler, Jacob deGrom (against the Marlins in Miami) and Noah Syndergaard (against the Cardinals in St. Louis, with an assist from Dexter Fowler) have also gone deep this season.
