Pete Alonso hit a two-run home run in the New York Mets' 7-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday.

It was Alonso's 25th home run, tying the record for most homers by a National League rookie before the All-Star break set by Cody Bellinger in 2017.

He became the first rookie in NL history to hit at least 25 home runs in his team's first 75 games of the season.

"He's probably the one guy in our lineup right now that you're gonna say, 'Don't let him beat us,'" Mickey Callaway said. "They're not just trying to get ahead and making sure they get a strike. Pete does a good job of laying off the ones he can't hit, and when they make one mistake, he makes them pay."
