Pete Alonso made history on Saturday.
In the first inning, the Mets rookie slugger belted a curveball 419 feet into center field for his 26th home run of the season.
The home run ties Darryl Strawberry for the Mets rookie franchise record but also gives him the most home runs in National League history by a rookie before the All-Star break, surpassing a record set by Dodgers' Cody Bellinger two seasons ago. The MLB record is 33 set by Mark McGwire.
Among the other highlights from Saturday's game against the Cubs was Todd Frazier going deep for a two-run home run in the fourth inning to give the Mets a 5-0 lead.
