Mets' Pete Alonso: Goes yard again

Alonso went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Nationals. Alonso took Tanner Rainey deep in the eighth inning to tie the game at 5-5. It was his 16th homer of the season and second in as many games to begin the team's series against the Nationals. The 24-year-old rookie continues to be a tremendous source of power, hitting .260/.347/.604 across 193 plate appearances.

The Chris Paddack-Pete Alonso beef is about to make this an NL Rookie of the Year race for the ages

  • The National League boasts two rookies who don't just look like ROY favorites; they look like two of the best players in baseball. They're Padres starting pitcher Chris Paddack and Mets first baseman Pete Alonso, they've got some beef, and their rivalry is set to make this awards season incredibly fun. Alonso was named NL Rookie of the Month for April after hitting 9 dingers with a 1.024 OPS. Paddack-who had a 1.91 ERA for the month, seemed to feel a bit slighted. As the Padres prepared to face the Mets in early May, he made it known that the race was on: “Does he deserve [the Rookie of the Month honor]? Absolutely," Paddack told the Athletic. "But I’m coming for him. We’ll see Monday who the top dog is." 
  • The Mets and Padres will only meet once more this season, a three-game series in New York from July 23-25, so it's possible the two won't face each other again before the NL Rookie of the Year is named. In addition to the potential Paddack-Alonso July matchup, there are five more Rookie of the Month honors to be handed out. If they prove to be anything like the first, this beef could well reach Simmons-Mitchell levels. Let's hope it does, because the NL Rookie of the Year race is already shaping up to be a fun one to watch.
