Pete Alonso went 1-for-5 with a run scored, two RBI, and a stolen base on Wednesday against the Braves.
The stolen base was Alonso's third of the season, but his two-RBI single in the ninth inning was far more important. He had been slumping a bit of late, with his average down to .276, but he now has 99 RBI and remains one of the fiercest power hitters in the game. He's been stuck on 29 home runs since April 4th, but once he gets over the hump, expect the long-balls to come in bunches once again.
Pete Alonso went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI on Thursday against the Braves.
That's three home runs in four games for Alonso, who is hitting his power stroke at the right time for both the Mets and fantasy managers. He's at 29 now for the year and seems destined to pass last year's total of 37. He's now just three RBI off his 2021 pace, and continues to be one of the best power hitters in baseball.
Pete Alonso went 1-for-4 with two RBI, two runs scored, and a home run on Wednesday against the Nationals.
Alonso has now homered four times in his last nine games, and looks to be finding his power stroke yet again. He's up to 28 home runs on the season now to go along with 88 RBI. Alonso's pull percentage is a career high 47%, so he should have no problem adding onto his home run total regularly. He's one of the best power hitters in the game, bar none.
Pete Alonso went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored on Monday against the Nationals.
Alonso is now up to 27 home runs on the season, and although he hit just four home runs in July, he's gotten off on the right foot in August. His 19.4% strikeout rate is a career best and he's only eight RBI behind his 2021 total. In other words, it's been a successful season for Alonso, and despite a recent slump, he's obviously someone to leave in your lineup at all times.
Pete Alonso went 1-for-3 with a solo home run on Wednesday against the Yankees.
This was Alonso's second home run in three games and his 26th of the season, as he continues to demonstrate that he's one of the best power hitters in the game. His wOBA, xWOBA, and xSLG are all in the top nine percent of MLB, and he should challenge 40 home runs by season's end.
