VIDEO: Yordan Alvarez Clobbers 3-Run Homer as Astros Extend Lead Over Royals

Yordan Alvarez's rookie campaign has been something to marvel at, and fortunately it won't come to an end when the regular season concludes. Alvarez just crushed his 23rd homer of the year, a three-run shot off Royals' Gabe Speier to give the 'Stros a 5-1 lead in the eighth inning.

Alvarez has shown no mercy to pitchers, and he just put the game firmly out of reach for Kansas City with his latest display of power.

He's got the AL Rookie of the Year in the bag, and Houston will need him to stay hot in his first taste of October baseball.
