    With the Mets (New York Mets championship rings) trailing by a run in the eighth inning, Pete Alonso drove a fastball from Tanner Rainey down the left-field line, well over the foul pole. „I talked to it,“ Alonso said. „I was like `stay fair, please‘ and it listened.“ Alonso set the Mets rookie record for home runs before the All-Star break with 1 1/2 months to spare, Amed Rosario had a winning infield single with two outs in the ninth and New York rallied from deficits three times to beat the Washington Nationals 6-5 Tuesday night. Washington led 1-0 in the fifth, 3-1 in the seventh and 5-4 in the eighth, but the Mets (22-25) kept bouncing back and won their second straight game after general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Mickey Callaway will remain the team’s manager „for the foreseeable future.“

    Alonso’s 16th homer broke the team rookie record for the first half set by Ron Swoboda in 1965. Alonso turned on a 1-2 pitch from Rainey (0-1), and the ball rose 126 feet and bounced off the Porsche Grille restaurant. The home run call on the field was upheld by a video review. Rainey walked Adeiny Hechavarria and J.D. Davis with one out in the ninth, Kyle Barraclough relieved and Jeff McNeil grounded into a forceout that left runners at the corners. McNeil advanced on defensive indifference and, with Robinson Cano on deck, Rosario hit a two-hopper grounder to shortstop and beat Trea Turner’s throw. „He just willed himself to run faster it looked like to me,“ Callaway said „It was unbelievable.“ Rosario made it to first in 4.03 seconds according to StatCast.
