No, Pete Alonso didn't enjoy his time in Chicago. 

Speaking to reporters, the New York Mets star was honest about his feelings following the team's 4-3 loss to the Cubs on Thursday, which concluded a three-game sweep in Chicago.

Pete Alonso: "Getting swept feels like eating a s--- sandwich, to be honest with you."

The Cubs defeated the Mets 3-1 on Tuesday and enjoyed a blowout victory, 16-4, on Wednesday.

For what it's worth, Alonso had a decent series. He went 1-for-4 via a two-run home run on Thursday, after hitting another one out of the park with one on on Wednesday. 

Despite their recent string of losses, the Mets are still hanging on to a tie with the Philadelphia Phillies for first place in the NL East at 7-7, though both teams will have to fend off advances from the rest of the division. The Miami Marlins are half a game out of first place, and only half a game separates them from the fifth-place Washington Nationals
