Pete Alonso on the fan that dropped his beer on Ryan Braun, allowing Alonso to come away with a triple:

A New York Mets fan intentionally (or unintentionally) drenched Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun on Sunday during play.
Move on over Jeffrey Maier; there’s a new cult fan hero in town.
It happened in the first inning of the Mets 5-2 victory over the Brewers. A Pete Alonso blast soared towards Braun’s way only to bounce off the wall for a triple when the former NL MVP couldn’t quite make the grab through the waterfall of hops.
Alonso later scored on a Todd Frazier single to put New York up 1-0. Despite a Brew Crew two-run 7th inning, the Mets tallied the final three runs of the contest to improve to 14-13 on the season.
Next up for the New York Mets will be a four-game set with the Cincinnati Reds in Flushing. Game 1 is slated for 7:10 p.m. ET on Monday night.
