 The offensive output keeps coming for the Astros' lineup. Yordan Alvarez had another big game on Saturday, finishing 3-for-4 with two runs and three RBI. He gave Houston extra insurance in the top of the ninth with a three-run homer.
Andersen Pickard
Sat, Apr 3rd
Javier Baez went 0-for-4 versus the Pirates Sunday. He did drive in the eventual winning run when the Pirates committed an error. Baez seems to be involved in more than his share of weird plays so after awhile, you might be tempted to refer to it as the Baez Effect. My father and I do.
