Yordan Álvarez’s grand slam is not enough and Astros lose to Twins

Yordan Alvarez once again demonstrated the power his bat has with a grand slam, but now it wasn’t enough for the Astros (3-6) beat the Twins (6-2). Those from Minnesota asserted their locality at Target Field and beat those from Houston 9-6.

The Cuban baseball player recorded the third grand slam of his career during the third chapter of the confrontation against the Twins. Álvarez sent the ball to the bottom of right field and Martín Maldonado, Chas McCormick and Alex Bregman scored with him to tie the game momentarily at four runs apiece.

The ball left Alvarez’s bat at a speed of 116 miles per hour.. According to ESPN’s statistics service, this homer was the second most powerful of the season and the second most powerful grand slam since the Statcast era. First place in both categories belongs to Giancarlo Stanton of the New York Yankees.

The Astros entered the top of the ninth with a five-run deficit, but Jeremy Peña’s home run only added two more lines to the board to put the final score.
