Real or Not? Taken down by Texas, Red Sox have lost their way again

The Astros have found their DH: Yordan Alvarez homered in his first game in the majors on Sunday and he homered in his second game in Houston’s 10-8 win over Milwaukee:

Yordan Alvarez hits homers in 100% of the games he plays in.

OK, it was hardly a monster mash, but the 21-year-old Cuban displayed his raw power by hitting it out without even putting a big swing on the ball, making him the first player in Astros history to homer in his first two games. The 21-year-old Cuban had hit .343/.443/.772 at Triple-A with 23 home runs in 56 games. I don’t think he needs to worry returning to Round Rock.

Tuesday night in home runs: Maybe we’ll make this a regular feature. Let’s see …

• Alvarez hit that ball out even though it looked he was merely chipping a ball onto the green at Pebble Beach. The Astros hit four home runs in the game. The Brewers hit three in the loss, including Christian Yelich’s 25th.

This is not something anyone expected to see on June 11:

• The Braves hit four home runs in the second inning of their 7-5 win over the Pirates — and five in the game, all off Chris Archer. That’s two days in a row we had a pitcher surrender five home runs (and don’t forget the four in a row the Nationals hit off Craig Stammen on Sunday).

• The Yankees hit three home runs in a 12-5 win over the Mets, including Gary Sanchez’s 20th. Sanchez was the DH and in eight games as a DH he’s hit .333 with seven home runs.

• The Mets responded with three home runs to win the second game of the doubleheader 10-4. Pete Alonso hit a three-run blast in the first inning off James Paxton, his 22nd in 66 career games. Most home runs through 70 career games:

Jose Abreu: 26
Cody Bellinger: 25
Matt Olson: 24
Gary Sanchez: 23
Wally Berger: 23

Eloy Jimenez hit his first home run at home in his young career. It only went 462 feet:

Eloy Jiménez absolutely CRUSHED this baseball.
