On The Board
New York Mets
For the third straight game their batsmen connected back to back home runs, an event that occurred for the first time in club history. Lucas Duda has hit his first three longballs of the season in the team's last three games along with his teammates (Neil Walker - 2 - and Yoenis Céspedes).
Extra: The Golden Sombrero (4 strikeouts in one game by a player) was put on by 3 hitters from three different teams during the same day. Christian Vazquez for the Boston Red Sox, Freddie Freeman for the Atlanta Braves, and David Wright for the New York Mets. For Vazquez it is his first time, while the other two get the seventh of their careers (MLB record is 27).
