Alvarez took his sixth loss of the season Wednesday against the Angels, allowing five earned runs over 6.1 innings with three strikeouts.
Alvarez was chased by a solo home run by the incomparable Mike Trout with one out in the bottom of the seventh, making it the second straight start that he failed to complete seven innings after doing so in five of his last seven turns. Alvarez has allowed nine earned runs over his past 12.1 innings pitched, but still holds a fantastic 2.75 ERA and 1.23 WHIP on the year. Alvarez -- who holds a dominating 1.46 ERA in 80 innings pitched at home this season -- will look to get back on track Monday against the Mets in Miami.
