Pedro Alvarez of the Pirates has hit 2 homers in each of the Pirates’ last two games.
Here are the last 10 times a guy has gone for 2 homers over each of 2 games:
The last time a Pirates player hit 2 homers in 2 straight games was in 2010, When Pedro Alvarez himself did it on July 20th and 21st. Before that? You have to go all the way back to Jason Thompson in 1984.
The last guy to hit 2 homers in 3 straight games was Jeff DeVanon in June of 2003.
