Pete Alonso's historic home run pace simply cannot be slowed down. With the Mets and Dodgers tied 3-3 in the top of the fifth inning, Alonso pulled his second home run of the game over the wall in left to give the Mets the lead. No Mets rookie has ever had a month like Alonso, whose 10 long balls in May are the most ever by a Met rookie in any calendar month.
In the top of the seventh inning, the Mets greeted Dodgers' reliever Julio Urias rudely, as Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith went back-to-back, hitting their home runs to nearly the identical spot.
Dodgers fans are notorious for arriving late to home games, so many of them probably weren't even in their seats yet when Alonso ripped a two-run homer off of Walker Buehler to give the Mets a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning.
Alonso's home run was his 18th of the season. Thirty-one of his 51 hits this season have gone for extra bases.
Todd Frazier singled to lead off the top of the second inning for the Mets, and a couple of batters later, Adeiny Hechavarria doubled to left-center field to extend the Mets' lead to 3-0.
