Yordan. If you're down 0-2, the next pitch isn't going to be a strike.

Alvarez promptly goes back to watching the exact first pitch strike he's gotten in every at bat this postseason.

**** first pitch fastball yordan is back


Come on, that first pitch fastball was low and away. Wouldn't have done much with it.

It's the second pitch he should have crushed.

Sigh....he got a little too rattled there

Wish we could trade one of his other hits with one right there

Back off the ledge. That first strike was perfect. Dotted low and away at 97

He's seen that exact pitch a dozen times this postseason. They keep throwing it because they are smarter than him and know he won't swing. They ball should have been in the Crawford's.

If this is their pitching, I feel ok about the next two innings.

A base hit scores 2 and ties the game, and Yordan goes back out with a 3 pitch strikeout

Taking the first pitch was the right decision. Missing the fastball over the plate for strike two was his mistake.
