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.
Alonso went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 5-3 win over the Nationals. He took Patrick Corbin deep in the first inning for his 15th homer of the year. Alonso leads all rookies in HR and RBI (35) on the season so far, and his .259/.344/.590 slash line through 46 games is nearly identical to his performance at Triple-A Las Vegas in 2018.
Alonso went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs in Friday's 8-6 loss to the Marlins. The rookie slugger took Trevor Richards deep in the second inning and touched up Nick Anderson in the eighth, giving Alonso 14 homers on the year to go along with his .266/.346/.595 slash line. He now sits third in the NL in home runs, behind only Christian Yelich (18) and Cody Bellinger (16), and Alonso's 34 RBI puts him in seventh.
Alonso is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals. Alonso has been struggling at the plate for most of May, batting just .196 with three home runs in 12 games while striking out 30 percent of the time. The rookie is in little danger of losing his starting role at this point, but he could be subject to more days off in the weeks to come as the Mets look to find room in the lineup for Dominic Smith, who has impressed in his limited action to date. Smith will substitute in for Alonso on Thursday and serve as the Mets' No. 2 hitter.
Alonso and the Mets won't play the Marlins on Sunday after the contest was postponed due to inclement weather in New York. The two teams will make up the postponed game as part of a doubleheader Aug. 5. The Mets will return to action Tuesday for the start of a three-game set in Washington.
