Frazier Displays His Power Against Brewers

Todd Frazier, coming into last night’s game, had not hit any home runs on the season and was still waiting for his illustrious first in a Mets uniform.

However, he hit his first and his second homers last night against the Milwaukee Brewers, with both homers coming off right-hander Zach Davies.

For the game, he went 3-3 with the two homers, a single, and a walk, which helped raise his average to .282.

The 32-year old had only four extra-base hits coming into the day, but he was able to hit two pitches over the fence yesterday.

Frazier hit his first big fly of the night in the second inning to dead center field. It went off the black wall in front of the Apple and over the 408-foot marker. The solo shot gave the Mets a 2-0 lead.

In the fourth, he followed with another big fly, this time into the left-field stands that helped the Mets take back the lead by a score of 3-2.

His first two homers proved to be crucial for the team in their 6-5 win and the team’s ninth in a row as the Mets moved to 11-1 on the season.

Throughout his career, the right-handed hitter has been known for his power stroke as he had 131 home runs from 2014-2017.

As he showed last night with his two homers, there is no reason he shouldn’t be able to at least match the 27 homers he hit last season with the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees.

Frazier has so far proven to be worth the two-year, $17 million investment the team has made, with him being a great clubhouse presence, solid defender, while also showing his power stroke last night.
