On Saturday, Pete Alonso tied Darryl Strawberry's rookie home run record for the Mets when he mashed his 26th dinger at Wrigley Field.
Well, it only took him to his next game to break it.
Continuing to stay hot at the plate this season, Alonso took Cole Hamels to deep right-center field for a no doubter to make his home run total 27 on the season. Now Alonso's name is written next to the record for the most rookie home runs in a single season in franchise history...
"Congrats to Pete for breaking my record which has stood for a long time," Strawberry told the Mets. "What he's done in a short period of time is most impressive. No goal seems out of reach. I wish Pete and Mets all the best the rest of year."
Alonso has been everything the Mets thought he would be and more when he broke Spring Training with the big club. His 27 homers makes him second in the league in that category, only behind Christian Yelich (29).
