New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso delivers yet another clutch home run, this time doing it against the Washington Nationals.
How special is Pete Alonso?
Better than his sheer power is the idea the kid is always coming through when it matters most. On Tuesday night in Flushing, he did it again.
The New York Mets first baseman pulled a moonshot that cleared the left-field pole by quite a bit, leaving everybody wondering whether it was a legitimate home run.

Trailing 5-4 at the time, Alonso pulled the Mets even heading into the ninth inning.
Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh, J.D. Davis smacked a three-run shot to give New York a 4-3 lead. The moment was shortlived, however, as Jeurys Familia bombed. His two runs in just 0.1 innings of work quickly choked up a nice Citi Field moment.
Alonso is currently 1-for-3 with a run and a ribbie, all coming on the biggest moment of the game up to this point.
