Pete Alonso defeated Trey Mancini to win his second straight MLB Home Run Derby on Monday night at Coors Field.
Alonso beat Mancini, 23-22, and did so with the extra time he earned while hitting the long balls in the final round. He needed to muster up everything he could to get past Mancini and did just that.
The New York Mets star was wearing the chain and holding the trophy at the end.
“Trey’s story is just unbelievable,” Alonso said. “Everybody in the Derby put on a show but Trey’s story is just unbelievable. And I’m just happy he was able to participate and put on the show. Everyone did awesome.”
Alonso defeated Juan Soto and Salvador Perez to get to the final. Mancini beat Matt Olson and Trevor Story.
Alonso has 17 home runs for the first-place Mets this season.
