Yordan Alvarez is cementing himself as a legend in Houston.
Alvarez won Game 1 of the ALDS for his Houston Astros against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday with an enormous three-run walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.
The humongous home run was estimated to have been a 438-foot blast.
Alvarez also had a two-run double in the third to help bring the Astros back when they were in a 4-0 hole.
The Mariners held a 7-3 lead going into the eighth. But Alex Bregman hit a two-run home run to make it 7-5. Then Alvarez delivered the walk-off blast in the ninth to end things.
Yordan went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and five RBI in his team’s 8-7 win. The 25-year-old put up an MVP-quality season during the regular season too. He batted .306 with 37 home runs and a 1.019 OPS. He is establishing himself as one of the best hitters in MLB.
