Healthy Yordan Alvarez looks to lead Astros past Royals

The worst-case scenario for Houston Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez in the field happened last week when he collided with shortstop Jeremy Pena while both tracked a popup in the eighth inning against the New York Mets.

The Astros were without Alvarez and his MVP-caliber bat for two games while he completed concussion protocols. But on Tuesday, in the second game of a four-game series against the visiting Kansas City Royals, the Astros witnessed the best of Alvarez in the outfield and at the plate.

Alvarez snuffed a Kansas City threat in the top of the eighth inning by completing a double play with a precise throw to the plate that erased Hunter Dozier. He then socked his 25th home run in the bottom half to help carry the Astros to a 9-7 victory that extended their winning streak to eight.
