Colin Dunlap: Alvarez Pushed Through Bad Times To Make This His Time
This postseason has turned into Pedro Alvarez’s time.
When the Pirates’ third baseman belted the go-ahead RBI single — in a lefty-lefty matchup — in the eighth inning of what became a 5-3 victory on Sunday night, Alvarez continued his penchant for playing biggest when this club has needed him most.
The RBI was his sixth of the postseason.
The hit propelled him to 4 for 10 in the playoffs, where he has two home runs and 11 total bases.
