. @ESPNStatsInfo : Yordan Alvarez’s three HRs in this postseason not only put the Astros ahead, but came when the team was behind. He’s the only player in MLB playoff history to have 2 trailing to over-the-top HR in the 6th inning or later, and he’s now hitting 3 in the entire postseason. https://t.co/ZfET4x8Bp1

I want to personally thank the Dodgers again for sending Jordan away. It turned out great.

Jordan is really him 😭😭😭

Alex Del Barrio @alexdelbarrio

Yordan Alvarez is the closest thing baseball has to Big Papi magic. When that’s all said and done… Jordan might pass him and Dad might be the best playoff key hitter ever. Crazy thinking about it

Jessica Kleinschmidt @KleinschmidtJD I really like Yordan Álvarez

Mackaline Johnson @Mackailynjtv

YORDAN and PEÑA are the kings of this series and I am obsessed with 😭⚾️⚾️

2022 campaign is Alvarez’s fourth in MLB game. He won Rookie of the Year in 2019 and was an All-Star this year, but his World Series-winning home run likely will linger in his memory more than any other honor.

Luckily for the Astros, Alvarez signed a six-year, worth The $115 million extension will be locked into the 2028 season. For what he has accomplished at such a young age, the price tag seems like a good deal.

As long as Alvarez is around, Houston should be fighting for more titles in the years to come.
