Alonso went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 5-1 victory over the Phillies. The rookie slugger got his team on the board with a third-inning double and later plated another run after getting hit by a pitch. Alonso has 21 RBI and a robust 1.144 OPS in his first 92 MLB plate appearances.
Alonso went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 6-4 loss to St. Louis. Alonso got things started early with a long shot in the first inning. The slugging rookie went through a six-game homerless drought but now has two in his last three contests. Alonso owns an outstanding .325/.416/.727 slash line with 15 extra-base hits and 19 RBI.
Alonso (hand) is batting second and playing first base Sunday against St. Louis. Alonso took a pitch off the hand in Saturday's game and required X-rays afterwards. He avoided a fracture and any bruise he suffered evidently won't be enough to keep him out of the lineup.
X-rays on Alonso's hand were negative Saturday, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports. Alonso appears to have avoided serious injury, but it's unclear if he'll require any time off.
Alonso will undergo an X-ray on his right hand Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. It's unclear what exactly is the problem for Alonso, but more should become clear following further tests. If he's forced to miss time, Dominic Smith would see an expanded role at first base.
