New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo smacks two home runs in helping his team rout the Colorado Rockies 12-2.

Brandon Nimmo continues to get it done and apparently, hitting the ball over the fence has become too easy.

While he and his New York Mets take on the Rockies in the thin air of Colorado, Nimmo got the party started correctly with the inside-the-park home run on the very first at-bat.


In pure Nimmo fashion, he accomplished the feat with over 75 friends and family in the crowd while he plays somewhat near his hometown of Cheyenne, Wyoming. (It’s at least the closest option across Major League Baseball.)

The young smiling-outfielder needed just 14.70 seconds to touch all four bases on the most exciting play in baseball.

Ruben Tejada was the last Met to accomplish the feat that is the inside-the-park home run.

An inning later, Jose Bautista produced the Mets second run by grounding out. Michael Conforto scored. Wilmer Flores added to the lead with a solo shot in the fourth inning, and that’s where the two teams remain.

New York currently leads by the score of 2-1 with Jacob deGrom on the mound. And yes, deGrom actually relented a run (believe it or not). But hey, it’s Coors Field.

The New York Mets are currently after their third straight win, Brandon Nimmo smiles and all.

Update, Postgame

It’s about time the New York Mets provided Jacob deGrom with run support—12 runs worth.

The offense staked the MLB pitcher with the lowest ERA this season to six runs and a 6-2 lead by the time he went out to pitch a scoreless eighth inning, his last of the night. In total, deGrom allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits while striking out seven in eight brilliant innings.

He earned his first win in just about a month of action.

Offensively, Nimmo was the stud. After his leadoff inside-the-park home run, he smacked a traditional shot in the seventh. The young lefty swinger raised his average to .287 with the splendid 4-for-6, two-homer, two-run, four-RBI night.

Michael Conforto finished 3-for-4 with two runs, Amed Rosario went 3-for-5 with two RBI, and both Wilmer Flores and Devin Mesoraco each chipped in with a long-ball.

Now, winners of three straight, they’ll look to extend this outrageous winning streak to four on Tuesday night in the Rocky Mountains.
