"He was outstanding," said designated hitter Pedro Álvarez, who hit two homers — a solo blast in the fifth inning and a two-run shot in the seventh — for his first multihomer game since Aug. 5, 2016. "That's obviously the Chris I've known for a long time. Today, one of the best performances I've seen out of him. So relieving to see. It just helps out, helps our defense, helps our offense, just an amazing job by him today."
