Why did Alonso, who ran quickly even when he hit the 13th gun, ran faster than the 21st gun?

The major league home run leader is Pete Alonso of the New York Mets.
Alonso hit his 21st home run of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays at Citi Field in New York on the 5th (hereinafter Korean time), widening the gap to Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees by two runs.
Judge missed the away game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that day. This is because he injured his right big toe the previous day while catching an outfield fly and hitting the fence net installed in the right bullpen. Judge is adding homers at breakneck speed after recovering from a hip injury. He has hit 13 home runs in his last 19 games.
Alonso is not in a safe position. In the bottom of the 6th inning, trailing 2-4, after one out, right-hander Nate Pearson pulled the slider that flowed outside the 89th mile on the second pitch and slightly crossed the left wall. It was his first home run 8 days after the game against the Colorado Rockies on the 28th of last month.
However, even though it was a home run, Alonso sprinted and slid from second base. This is because the ball hit the fence and bounced out. When the third base umpire declared a home run by drawing a circle with his right hand, it slowly turned again. Looking at the replay screen, the batted ball hit the home run line marked in scarlet and bounced off.
However, this is not the first time Alonso has hit a home run and sprinted this season.
On May 11, in an away game against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park, he hit a home run and quickly ran around the bases. Why was it like that then?
At that time, Alonso went out as the lead batter in the second inning, trailing by 0-1, and pulled the slider of the first pitch, which fell in the middle of Hunter Green’s 85.6 mile pitch, and flew over the left wall. The ball, which had a launch angle of 37 degrees and an exit speed of 104.7 miles, landed at a distance of 374 feet in the middle of the left spectator seat.
Alonso recently told the local personal channel ‘Foul Territory’ about the situation at the time.
“The timing was bad when I drank coffee near training before the game. After training normally, I went into defense at the end of the first inning and threw. But the signal came. It was really bad,” he said. “I was the lead batter in the beginning of the second inning. I decided to throw it away regardless of the ball. I had to do that.”
The toilet was in a hurry.
However, Green, who freely throws a 100-mph fastball, accidentally threw a breaking ball at the first pitch and it turned out to be a mistake that did not land properly, which worked as luck for Alonso.
If you look at the scene of the game at the time, Alonso hurries around the base after hitting a home run. Then he hits the groove and disappears from the dugout without being properly congratulated by his colleagues.먹튀검증
Alonso said, “I didn’t have time. As soon as I stepped on home plate, I went straight to the bathroom. I didn’t even do a high-five.” “he confessed.
The truth is that he did high fives with his co-workers, but only pretended.
It is unknown whether Alonso has adjusted the coffee time before the game after that, but Fox Sports said at the time, ‘I don’t know if Alonso often misses coffee time now.’
