HOUSTON – He did it again.

Astros Rookie Sensation Yordan Alvarez became the fourth major league player in his first five career games, with at least four home appearances, the third inning on Saturday at Minute Maid Park.

According to Statcast, Alvarez, who started in the left field for the first time in his career, squeezed a Richard pitch of approximately 400 meters in right midfield into the upper deck. The ball left the club at 1

09.6 mph. Alvarez had the three hardest hit balls of the match on Friday when he went 3 against 4 with a homer.

The 21-year-old phenomenon moves to Trevor Story (six in 2016), Yasiel Puig (four in # 13) and Mike Jacobs (four in # 05) as the only players in MLB history with at least four home runs in their first five career games.

The Homer was Alvarez's first against a left-hander in the majors. When he came into the game, he had a career game against a left-hander (a walk) before he played a double in bat on his first Saturday. The Homer came with two outs and no runners on base.

Alvarez scored 563 games in 23 games and 71 RBIs this season in Triple-A Round Rock.
