Pedro Alvarez went 2-for-3 with two home runs, four RBI , two runs scored and a walk against the Brewers on Saturday.

After a season's worth of struggles forced the Pirates to remove Alvarez from full-time third base duties and turn him into a platoon partner at first base, he finally woke up at the plate and turned out a performance the team had been expecting to see regularly all year long. Unfortunately for him, we're in the too little, too late stage and even a game like this won't save him. Maybe if he has say four or five more in the next week or so, it'll be different, but that's pretty doubtful.
