Mets beat Royals 4-1 behind deGrom, Alonso

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Pete Alonso's error at first base in the fourth inning led to Kansas City's only run of the night and put the New York Mets behind.

So when he got a chance to come through for his teammates with the bases loaded in the seventh, Alonso didn't want to fail. After narrowly missing out on a grand slam, the rookie slugger settled for a two-run single that put Jacob deGrom and the Mets ahead Saturday in a 4-1 victory over the Royals.

"Definitely when guys are on base, it definitely helps me," Alonso said. "Like OK, I put us in a little hole earlier in the game, this is a chance at redemption."
