|Monday, April 22nd, 2030: NL's Star Player Named|
This week's Player of the Week was Yordan Alvarez of the Seattle Mariners.
His red-hot bat sizzled and scorched National pitching for 11 hits in 21 at-bats, 6 home runs and 9 RBIs, while hitting .524 and scoring 10 runs.
In this current campaign Alvarez is hitting at a .444 clip with 8 home runs and 13 RBIs.
|Wednesday, April 17th, 2030: Hit Parade! Alvarez Pops 5 Hits!|
All game long Seattle's Yordan Alvarez was rattling the walls at Kingdome / Safeco Field and banging out base hits against the Pittsburgh Pirates. When the dust finally settled on the diamond, he had a 5-hit day and the Mariners had a 20-5 victory.
Speaking with reporters after his standout performance, the 26-year-old left fielder said, "Get 5 hits, win a ballgame, it's nice. I could get used to this."
Y. Alvarez flied out in the 1st, hit an RBI single in the 2nd, flied out in the 3rd, hit a solo-shot off M. Beauregard in the 5th, singled in the 7th, singled in the 9th and hit a solo-shot off D. Griffith in the 9th.
This year Alvarez has hit at a .453 clip with 11 RBIs, 7 home runs and 20 runs scored.
|Monday, April 15th, 2030: Muncy Goes 6-7|
Max Muncy told the press after his 6-hit day, "Every batter wants to have a quality at-bat every time he steps up to the plate. He wants to hit the ball hard."
Well, that's just what Muncy of the Pittsburgh Pirates did against the Seattle Mariners. He went to the plate 7 times and 6 times he delivered base hits, much to the chagrin of the Mariners, who suffered a 24-6 defeat.
"Not much that I can say," offered the losing manager, "he just hammered the heck out of us."
M. Muncy singled in the 1st, hit an RBI double in the 2nd, singled in the 4th, singled in the 5th, hit a solo-shot off P. Bingham in the 6th, grounded out in the 6th and hit a solo-shot off A. Matos in the 8th.
So far this season Muncy is hitting .373 with 2 home runs.
