Yordan Alvarez puts together historic ALCS in MVP effort
© Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez celebrates with teammates after winning MVP of the ALCS to advance into the World Series after defeating the Boston Red Sox in Game 6.

If there’s one name Boston Red Sox fans will walk away from the 2021 season never forgetting, it’s Yordan Alvarez.

Alvarez was an absolute monster in the ALCS and won MVP for deserving reasons. He got a hit in every game of the series and was the catalyst for Houston winning the pivotal Game 5 in Boston.

As if his 3-for-5 night and delivering the first three RBIs in Game 5 weren’t enough, Alvarez was at it again in Game 6.

Alvarez went 4-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in the Astros’ 5-0 win over the Red Sox to win the pennant.

He finished with the highest batting average (.522) in ALCS history.

The 24-year-old Cuban also scored a run in all but one of the games in the series. He scored seven runs total in the six games.

Boston could not get Alvarez out over the last three games of the series. His efforts plus some great pitching from Framber Valdez and Luis Garcia are the biggest reasons the Astros are moving on to the World Series.
