The Mets built a 5-0 lead, but eventually lost the game 9-6 to see their lead over the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East trimmed to one game.
Alou's drive followed a two-run shot by Carlos Beltran, the fourth time the Mets have hit consecutive homers this year.
After getting four hits Tuesday, including a three-run double, Alou began the night batting .400 (46-for-115) during the streak.
