Mets first baseman Pete Alonso has been named the National League Rookie of the Month for March and April, Major League Baseball announced Thursday.
Alonso hit .292/.382/.642 with nine home runs, eight doubles, a triple and 26 RBI in his first 29 games in the majors.
The 24-year-old leads all MLB rookies with his nine home runs, and also tied a franchise record for the most home runs hit by a player before May 1.
The rookie first baseman collected his first career walk-off hit Tuesday night with his sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th inning.
Tampa Bay's Brandon Lowe took home the award for the American League.
