Mets first baseman Pete Alonso was hit in the helmet for the second time this season Tuesday night in St. Louis.
With the Mets leading 2-0 in the eighth inning, Alonso was thrown on his helmet by Cardinal right-hander Kodi Whitley. Luckily for the Amazin’s, Alonso was fine and jogged to the first after staring at Whitley for a brief moment.
On April 7 against the Nationals, Alonso was hit by a 94-mph pusher from Mason Thompson, which grazed his shoulder and hit the helmet flap protecting his face. The flap hit him in the mouth, bleeding the first baseman in a spooky scene at Nationals Park.
But Alonso didn’t waste any time after that thud either.
Alonso was one of three Mets hit during the game as Dominic Smith and Starling Marte also went down. The Mets have hit 18 batters this season.
