The New York Mets continued their hot start to the 2022 season on Sunday with a 5-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

With the win, the Mets moved to 7-3 on the season, and that’s without having ace Jacob deGrom in the starting rotation. The victory also landed New York with its second straight series win over a National League opponent.

Things are looking up in the Big Apple.

The game was headlined by sluggers Pete Alonso and JD Davis, who both drove home runs to help the Mets land the shoutout victory. Alonso sent a two-run homer sailing into the seats in the eighth inning while Davis ripped an RBI single earlier in the sixth.

While those two certainly made their mark on the outcome of the contest, it was an unlikely pinch hitter that absolutely stole the show in Citi Field.

Late in game action, rookie outfielder Nick Plummer was called upon as a defensive replacement, taking the place of the aforementioned JD Davis.

In the eighth inning, the first-year player got his first career at-bat. His walkup song choice was a crowd favorite.

Plummer entered the batter’s box to the theme song of the Super Mario Bros. video game franchise. The fans loved it.

Unfortunately, the tune wasn’t able to land the lefty his first career hit. Plummer lined out to center field on a 1-0 fastball, but he’d already won the viewers over.

Hopefully we’ll get to see more of Plummer as the season progresses. This has to be one of the top walkup songs in all of baseball.
