Alvarez and Singleton got accredited for Great performance


Alvarez and Singleton hit huge home runs to help the Houston Astros stop the New York Yankees from sweeping them.


The Houston Astros’ Yordan Alvarez and Jon Singleton both blasted big home runs in the first inning. This prevented a perfect sweep in their meetings this season as they defeated the New York Yankees 4-3 on Thursday night.

After struggling in his previous nine games, hitting just 3 out of 32 balls without a home run, Alvarez shocked everyone by blasting a solo homer off Marcus Stroman (2-2) that traveled at an astounding 116.8 mph and into the right field second deck.


Joe Espada, manager of the Astros, expressed his pleasure, adding that Alvarez’s hit demonstrated his will to succeed. Moments later, Singleton hit a two-run home ball at 115.4 mph that landed in right field’s third deck. He was also pleased with that hit. For Stroman, giving up two home runs in one inning was unusual.
In expressing his opinions, Singleton said that Stroman often stays away from the center of the plate, but on this particular occasion, he made a mistake that allowed him to score.

In one inning, the Astros accomplished a historic achievement by hitting two home runs that clocked in at over 115 mph. The Yankees had not encountered harder hits all season before these home runs.


With two hits, including an RBI single in the fifth inning, Jeremy Peña also made a contribution. The Astros turned the tables in this game, demonstrating their resiliency against a team they’ve fought historically against, after losing the first six games of the season against the Yankees.
