Alvarez Blast Propels Astros to Win in Opener Against Cleveland, 4-3.

Alvarez Blast Propels Astros to Win in Opener Against Cleveland, 4-3.

Photo by Bob Levey/ Greinke sharp after long layoff. In the last recap, I said Yordan Alvarez couldn’t hit a beach ball. Maybe, but his two-run home run tonight was some kind of a ball, and it sure went a long way. After an 0-22 stint, Yordan had two hits and two crucial RBI in this close 4-3 win over the Cleveland Indians. It was half the Astros run production, the other two runs coming from a Yuli Gurriel double in the first inning, and a two-out RBI single by Martin Maldonado in the fourth. Air Yordan. Lift off. #ForTheH pic.twitter.com/Fx5gNBEp2W— Houston...

Can Yuli Gurriel repeat what he did two years ago for the Astros?

Can Yuli Gurriel repeat what he did two years ago for the Astros?

Photo by Bob Levey/ In 2019, the first baseman had a brilliant second half to help the Astros conquer first place in the AL West. Yuli Gurriel is having a helluva season so far in 2021 for the Houston Astros. In 84 games, it’s been an outstanding offensive showing that’s even more unbelievable when you compare it to the poor stats he posted in 2021. But this time, the Astros need more for the second half. Baseball-Reference That last sentence pops up a question: Can the 37-year-old star provide the same level of production he provided in 2019...

Four Astros Selected to All-Stars

Four Astros Selected to All-Stars

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports No starting pitchers selected. Yuli Gurriel and Yordan Alvarez barely miss the final cut. Four Astros made the All-Stars in 2021, all as reserves. They are: Carlos Correa, SS Jose Altuve, 2B Michael Brantley, OF Ryan Pressly, RP Perhaps the most controversial Commission is Yuli Gurriel, who was beaten out by the Angels’ Jared Walsh. Although Gurriel has the edge in fWAR by a small margin, 2.3 to 2.2, and has the edge in overall hitting, wER_ 147 -143, Walsh has twice as many home runs, 20 - 10, the stat that tends to have an outsize...

Astros: 1 player that should play more, 1 that should less

Before Friday’s contest, the Houston Astros placed Yordan Alvarez on the paternity list, as they recalled Taylor Jones from Triple-A. While down Alvarez, Yuli Gurriel (rest) and Kyle Tucker (back spams), they still rolled past the Cleveland Indians, 6-3. With Lance McCullers Jr. surrendering two runs on six hits and four walks, the right-hander also […] Astros: 1 player that should play more, 1 that should less - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - Houston Astros News, Rumors, and Fan Community
