Alvarez’s six RBIs power Pirates past Indians 9-5

CLEVELAND (AP) — Pedro Alvarez drove in a career-high six runs with his second two-homer game in two days, powering the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Cleveland Indians 9-5 Sunday.

Alvarez hit three-run homers in the fourth and fifth innings for his fourth career multihomer game. He also doubled, for his first game of three extra-base hits.

Tony Watson (4-0), the second of five Pirates pitchers, worked 1 2/3 innings of relief as Pittsburgh took two of three for their sixth series win in the last seven chances.

Jeanmar Gomez (4-6) allowed eight runs — four earned — over 4 1-3 innings for Cleveland. Eight runs came directly after three errors by shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera. The Indians lost for the fifth time in six games.
