Pedro Alvarez Show Continues

Pedro Alvarez got news yesterday that he will finish the season in AA.  Trying his best to change the mind of the Pirate brass, Alvarez promptly went 3-for-4 and scored a run.   Alvarez was hitting in the three hole last night and he is on a .353 tear in his past ten games with 3doubles, a homer, 7RBI and 5BB.  Alvarez has a combined stat line from A and AA as follows: 259 average, 23 doubles, 20HR, 75RBI, an 839 OPS with 47 walks and 102 strikeouts.   

Unfortunately, Gorkys Hernandez continued his slump, now 0-for-18 in his past five games.

Phil Dumatrait was hit hard allowing nine hits in four innings and allowed five runs while striking out four Trenton Thunder batters.
