Blue Rocks reliever Matt Alvarez in video

Wilmington Blue Rocks reliever Matt Alvarez had his struggles in August, where manager Brian Buchanan said he was “out of whack with his delivery,” but the “he has real good stuff.” We saw that good stuff on Monday afternoon in the Blue Rocks regular season finale. I believe he was topping at 96mph.

Alvarez allowed a run on one hit and two walks over 2.2 innings. He struck out two, with his run scoring after he was pulled from the game.

Below is video of the first inning Alvarez pitched, the sixth against Myrtle Beach.

Pelicans DH Victor Caratini got the inning started:


Next up was Pelicans first baseman Jacob Rogers:


Alvarez then got Pelicans catcher Cael Brockmeyer to hit into an inning ending double play:


About Jen Nevius

I first became a KC Royals fan way back in 1995 when I attended my first Wilmington Blue Rocks game. I fell in love with minor league baseball then and began following the Royals as former Blue Rocks clawed their way to the big leagues. 3+ years ago I started covering the Royals for Aerys Sports, but since the site has been shut down, I am going out on my own.
