Cuban “Big Yordan” hit another two home runs and is second in the Majors

Yordan Alvarez comes in MVP mode in this campaign, and as proof is his second among home runs in all major leagues to date, after the day before he dispatched a couple of balls to the Twins’ pitching.

Thus, the slugger from Las Tunas he reached ten homers and is only surpassed by the phenomenon Aaron Judgewho has 11. Interestingly, in this young season the Cuban has almost added a third of the home runs he hit in 2021when he shot 33.

Their connections this Thursday underpinned the Astros’ victory in the second game of the double bill against Minnesota, and in both cases they punished right-handed pitchers who saw how the two Rawlings said goodbye through the very center of Target Field.

Namely, the first one was prescribed in the third inning to the starter Josh Winder at the cost of a four-seam fastball (93.4 mph), and the other, to the reliever Cole Sandsin the ninth episode and about a shipment instead.

Such a solid day not only catapulted him in the home run department, but also placed him within the American League third in slugging at .615, ranking 10th in OBP (.377) and 4th in OPS (.992).

At the moment, the giant is batting .271 (96-26) with 19 RBIs and 17 walks.
