Alonso breaks NL rookie HR record, Mets crown Royals 11-5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Pete Alonso wasn't even sure he was going to make the New York Mets' opening day roster, so even he never could have imagined the incredible season he's having.

The burly first baseman hit his 40th home run to break the National League rookie record, capping a late outburst by the New York Mets in their 11-5 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.

"This season's been unbelievable," Alonso said. "It's been a dream come true so far and I just want to keep building off of it and keep trying to help this team win."
