Alvarez started out slow with USA baseball but has been a tear recently.
Against Mexico, Alvarez's RBI single in the third scored two runs for the Americans. An RBI single to right-center to
tied the game in the fifth. In the sixth Alavarez had another RBI, this time on a double.
Alvarez, who some experts project would been the #1 pick if he were in the MLB draft, has 39 hits, 38 RBIs, and 19
walks in 97 at bats. He also has 5 homeruns and has stolen 9 bases in 9 attempts.
Team USA improved to 24-2-1 with the win. The US will close out the Pool B portion of the schedule Friday night
against Chinese Taipei at 7:45 p.m. ET at Latino Stadium.
