Takeaways from Sunday’s game vs Cardinals

  • After being removed from yesterday game, Pete Alonso got right back in it today as he hit a home run in the top half of the first inning against his former college rival, Dakota Hudson. He also drew a walk in the 3rd and lined a single in the 9th going 2-4 and is now batting .325 this season.
  • While Noah wasn’t Thor on the mound, he swung the hammer for a home run that went off of a leaping Dexter Fowler’s glove and over the centerfield wall. The solo shot goes down as Syndergaard’s first home run of the season.
  • Before Robinson Canó was removed from the game after taking a fastball on the outer bone of his right wrist, he hit his third home run of the year and finished the game going 2-4. (Canó’s X-Rays came back negative.)
  • Michael Conforto quietly picked up his 6th home run of the year, cutting the lead to 6-4 after the on-field controversy surrounding Canó being hit by a pitch on the hand. It would go down as Conforto’s only hit but he did also pick up a base on balls.
  • Robert Gsellman was sharp. He pitched 3 scoreless innings and now has an ERA of 2.57 this season.
