On SportsNite, the guys discuss Pete Alonso possibly having an MVP season and the depth of the Mets starting pitching without Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer.
In this Mets vs Giants post game news conference, J.D. Davis credited hitting coaches Eric Chavez and Jeremy Barnes for working with him to get untracked on a 4-5 night with a pair of doubles in the Mets 13-3 win. Davis was also impressed with David Peterson's outing and not at all surprised by Pete Alonso's three-run homer. Davis: "A great team win, when you have eighteen hits and thirteen runs, I think everybody did well."
Pete Alonso hits a three-run homer in Mets' 13-3 win
The Mets used a five-run third inning and the outstanding pitching of David Peterson to rout the Giants 13-3. Francisco' Lindor's two-run double in the third tied the game at two and enabled him to reach the 500 RBI plateau for his career. Pete Alonso then followed with a three-run homer to left and Peterson proceeded to mow down eleven straight Giants in six innings of work to get the win. The Mets blew the game open in the eighth, on back-to-back home runs by Jeff McNeil and Mark Canha.
