I agree. And it would be a simple argument that this is essentially the one situation where all of his flaws and inconsistency as a hitter really don't matter.


I wouldn't have pinch hit him for Snider though. I would have pinch hit him to lead off the inning. That would have allowed for Snider to stay in LF and Alvarez could play 3B, the pitcher going to the 6 slot and Inge going to the bench. If the Pirates don't win, I'd rather have Snider in LF than Inge and that would have set up McKenry to pinch hit for the pitcher when the 6 spot next came up.
