Pirates | Pedro Alvarez on a tear

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez leads the National League with seven home runs and all of baseball with 23 RBIs since he homered twice and drove in three runs June 16. He is hitting .237 with 15 home runs and 48 RBIs while striking out 82 times and walking 27 times in 241 at-bats heading into Thursday, July 5. "Pedro going out wasn't an option," skipper Clint Hurdle said. "We were going to find a way, and I just stayed confident of the fact that he was going to find a way. Yeah, it didn't look good. There was times it didn't look good at all. But again, you got to believe in things other people don't believe in. You got to believe in things you can't see."
