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.
