Pete Alonso breaks Citi Field home run record

by admin

Pete Alonso is known for crushing mammoth homers, but he broke a Mets record on Sunday with a home run that just barely made it over the outfield wall. 

Alonso broke a tie with Lucas Duda when he hit his 72nd home run at Citi Field, the most in the history of the ballpark, which opened in 2009. The homer, his MLB-leading 21st of the season, was a low liner to left field off Nate Pearson in the bottom of the sixth inning that required an umpire review after it hit right on the orange line at the top of the outfield wall.

Alonso tied Duda with a grand slam off the Guardians’ James Karinchak on May 19.
