It was a big week for the Polar Bear.

New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso was named co-National League Player of the Week, sharing the honor with St. Louis Cardinals legend Albert Pujols, who cranked the 700th home run of his career.

Alonso won the award just one day after setting a new franchise record with 128 RBIs, the most in a single-season in Mets history. The previous record was 124 RBIs held by Mike Piazza (1999) and David Wright (2008). Alonso broke this mark by going 4-for-5 with a home run and five RBIs against the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.

Overall, Alonso has slashed .333./.407/.917 with four home runs and 13 RBIs across his last seven games, which ultimately earned him co-NL Player of the Week.

Alonso homered in back-to-back games in Oakland. He also homered in back-to-back games against the Milwaukee Brewers to help the Mets clinch their first postseason berth since 2016.
