Outfielder Brandon Nimmo became the first Mets player to hit a leadoff inside-the-park home run in nine years in Monday's game against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.
Nimmo hit Tyler Anderson's first pitch of the game to deep right-center field and rounded the bases in 14.7 seconds, the fastest time in the majors this season, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
The last Mets player to hit an inside-the-park home run was Ruben Tejada in 2015.
Angel Pagan was the last Met to hit a leadoff inside-the-park homer when he did it in 2009, according to ESPN.
Monday's inside-the-park home run was Nimmo's second home run in as many at-bats. He hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning of Sunday's 5-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
He added another home run in the seventh inning.
