New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso decided to break his bat over his knee during his team’s frustrating 3-2 loss to the Giants.

What Pete Alonso can do in this world, normal people couldn’t even think about. In fact, normal people would break themselves completely in half if they attempted his particular Sunday act.

After a frustrating strikeout in San Francisco, the 2019 Home Run Derby champ went old school. The New York Mets cornerstone player snapped the bat over his knee.

Alonso, 24, continues to struggle after his derby crown. The big man suffered through another disappointing day at the plate, finishing 0-for-3 in the Mets crushing 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Giants.

Steven Matz took the opening ball from Mickey Callaway and impressed. The southpaw pitched six innings of two-run ball while striking out six.

A 2-2 ballgame from the fourth inning on lasted until Mike Yastrzemski blasted a walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the 12th off Robert Gsellman. It was opposite-field shot that literally cleared the fences by inches.

Also struggling at the plate is Jeff McNeil, who uncharacteristically finished 0-for-5 at the plate. Fortunately, it didn’t prohibit him from making this filthy play in right field:

Elsewhere, J.D. Davis continues his recent hot stretch, collecting two of the Mets five hits on the day. For the Giants, Buster Posey and Zach Green paced their team with two hits apiece.

Amed Rosario smacked his 11th home run of the season in the second inning, a solo shot.

After winning four straight, the Mets have now lost three of four. They’ll take Monday off prior to welcoming in the San Diego Padres for a three-game slate at Citi Field.
