Alonso added a stolen base. He ended the game with a .269 batting average.
Analysis: Alonso went 5 for 8 in the series at Texas but played in only two of the four games because the Rangers used two southpaw starters. Twenty of his 25 home runs have come against right-handers, so Alonso should only be used for an extended stretch if Seattle is facing mostly righty starters.

Analysis: Alonso didn't start but made the most of his lone at-bat, taking a fastball from the struggling Aroldis Chapman over the center-field wall in the 11th inning to produce the deciding run. The recent acquisition has been swinging a hot bat for his new team, as he's 11 for 27 with two homers, eight RBIs and eight runs scored over an eight-game stretch.

Analysis: Alonso is 6 for 15 with a homer, double four RBIs and four walks in his last five games but will unlikely be in the lineup for Thursday's series finale with the Giants sending Ty Blach to the mound. The left-handed hitting Alonso has a .188/.278/.406 slash line against southpaws compared to a .290/.391/.563 mark versus righties. Since the All-Star break he is 1 for 12 with seven strikeouts and five walks against lefties.

The homer was his 22nd of the season. Alonso scored twice. He ended the game with a .268 batting average.
Analysis: Alonso came into the game hitting just .213 in July with 26 strikeouts in 80 at-bats. But he says he's trying a new approach at the plate, and so far it's working. ''I think for me it was just coming back to the basics, making sure I was getting good pitches to hit, making sure that I was using the whole field and at the end of the day just making sure I get a good pitch,'' Alonso said. ''I've got to get a strike.''

The homer was his 21st of the season. He ended the game with a .275 batting average.
Analysis: Alonso's batting average has dipped in recent weeks - he's hitting just .194 since June 22 - but Oakland's All-Star representative is still displaying power by homering four times in his past seven games. Though he's never taken Saturday's starter Corey Kluber deep in eight career at-bats, he's 3 for 8 lifetime off the Cleveland ace.

The homer was his fifth of the season. He ended the game with a .292 batting average.
Analysis: Alonso has never hit more than nine homers in a season at the major league level, so it remains to be seen if his power is sustainable. He's batting .333 (12 for 36) with eight RBIs over his last 12 games, though, so keep riding him while he's hot.
