Mets bash way to 4th straight win, 15-4 over Twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Dominic Smith put the New York Mets in front with his pinch-hit, three-run homer in the seventh inning, and Home Run Derby champion Pete Alonso added a 474-foot shot halfway up the third deck in a 14-4 victory over Minnesota on Wednesday that gave the Twins their first three-game losing streak this season.

Amed Rosario went 4 for 4 with a home run and three RBIs for the Mets, who overcame three one-run deficits, set a 2019 high for runs and matched a season best with their fourth consecutive victory. All of the wins have been on the road for New York, which at 21-32 still has the worst record away from home in the NL.

Though the Mets already had blown open the game against the Twins bullpen by that point, the eighth-inning drive to left by Alonso was the most remarkable of the humid afternoon, longer than any of the 57 he hit in the derby at Cleveland last week. It also was the first post-derby long ball by the rookie slugger.
