A lot of pressure has been on Pedro Alvarez.

He’s delivered lately.

Here’s a look at his last eight games:

DATE Opponent Result AB R H HR RBI
Sunday @ Angels  W, 10-9 5 2 2 1 1
Saturday @ Angels W, 6-1 4 1 2 1 1
Friday @ Angels W, 5-2 3 1 2 1 1

Tuesday @ Reds W, 4-0 4 0 1 0 2
Monday @ Reds L, 1-4 4 0 1 0 0

He has hit a homer in four straight games.

The Pirates will need him if they are to catch the Cards in the NL Central.

Here’s a homer by Alvarez in the first inning of Sunday’s game:

Update: Alvarez led off the big 10th inning with a double in the 10-9 win.
