Rookie Yordan Alvarez homers again, Astros top Blue Jays 7-2

HOUSTON (AP) Yordan Alvarez has quickly become a huge hit for the injury-depleted Houston Astros.

The 21-year-old rookie from Cuba homered again, connecting for an upper-deck shot Saturday to send the Astros over the Toronto Blue Jays 7-2.

Alvarez became the fourth player in major league history to hit four home runs in his first five games. He joined Trevor Story, who hit six for Colorado in 2016, Yasiel Puig (Dodgers, 2013) and Mike Jacobs (Mets, 2005).
