Pedro Alvarez is on a hot streak. In his last 10 games Pedro is hitting .382 with 4 Home Runs. The recent surge has lifted his OPS from .694 on May 14th to .822. But hot streaks are not unusual for Pedro Alvarez. We have seen him put together hot stretches like this in each of the last three seasons. What has convinced me that Pedro is a much improved hitter is what he accomplished...

Pedro Alvarez’s Mammoth Home Run Lands In Boat On Allegheny River (Video)

Pedro Alvarez did a little boating Tuesday night. The Pittsburgh Pirates slugger has proved in recent years that when he gets a hold of one, he’ll send it a very long way. Well, he got a hold of one Tuesday against the Minnesota Twins, and the end result was a water landing of sorts. Alvarez ripped a 471-foot solo home run in the fourth inning that, off the bat, looked like it...

WATCH: Pedro Alvarez Hits A HR Out Of PNC Park And Into The Allegheny River

Technically, Pedro Alvarez‘s home run didn’t make it do the Allegheny River because it landed on a boat docked right outside the stadium. Nonetheless, on a night that has seen 23 home runs thus far, this one was a jaw-dropper. The Pirates first basemen turned on a 2-0 pitch from Ricky Nolasco in the bottom of the 4th inning for his 7th home run of the year. The Pirates announced...

WATCH: Pittsburgh Pirates Pitcher Garritt Cole Causes 1B Pedro Alvarez to be Credited With An Error

Gerritt Cole can throw some serious heat. So when he turns and tries to pick off a base runner at first it stands to reason that he is going to throw as fast as he can. Apparently his pick-off throw to Pedro Alvarez was a little too hard Wednesday night. The ball tore right threw Alvarez's glove meaning the base runner was not only safe, but he had an easy run to second.For not making...
