On the night of Tuesday, June 28, the Houston Astros and New York Mets began a two-game series. For the game held at Citi Field in Queens, visitors Yordan Álvarez and Yuli Gurriel were the starters.

The man from Las Tunas hit a single in his first at-bat and got a ticket against rival starter Carlos Carrasco. The Venezuelan exploded just before he could face Yordan for the third time in the match.

In the beginning of the fifth, one out and one base runner came the Mets’ first relief, left-hander Chasen Shreve. After a hotly contested at-bat, on the ninth pitch, a fastball at 89.7 miles per hour, Álvarez hit him to center-left. The ball fell 403 feet and left the bat at 106.2 MPH.

With the home run he drove in two and reached 56 in the year. Plus, he increased the Astros’ lead to seven to none.

The 2019 Rookie of the Year is the 5th player with 80+ home runs and 300 hits in Major League history before turning 300 games. He has 299. The previous four were Chuck Klein, Bob Horner, Ryan Howard and Fernando Tatis Jr.

The Mets are the National Team to which the Cuban has hit the most home runs in his career with four. In fact, he is the second in history with that amount in the first three games against the Queens (Bobby Higginson 1997). Let’s enjoy the last one so far.
