hit bat! Alderson hits a HR against Harrisburg. It is his 2nd of the year.

Oh yeah, some guy named Alvarez also homered in the game - his 10th for Altoona and his 24th on the year.

He did have a pretty good bat in HS. I see he is hitting .273. Wonder how many at bats?

Alvarez hit it out of the park. In other words, over the right center wall (350-375 feet) over the stands (6 - 10 rows) and over the railing into the night. And, it wasn't a fly ball. It was a line drive.

And, the one that Alderson hit was not cheap either. Shoddy fielding on the right side of the infield cost Alderson a win here - Shelby Ford and the first baseman.

Brian Friday played well at short on the other side, and that Alvarez guy made a real nice play to get a runner on a bunt.
