Zack Wheeler made history on Tuesday night as the New York Mets defeated the Philadelphia Phillies.

Wheeler reached 100.6 mph on the radar gun, becoming just the 12th pitcher to reach 100 this season.

He then hit his first career home run, launching the ball 101.4 mph to the opposite field.

Amazingly, Wheeler did it in his 100th career start.

Not many pitchers have thrown a 100-mph pitch and hit a 100-mph batted ball in the same season since Statcast began tracking in 2015. Wheeler is one of 14 in that club, several of whom have done it in more than one year.
