Altuve went 3-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs during Saturday's win over Baltimore. The second baseman hit both doubles off lefty Wade Miley, which improved Altuve to an impressive .897 OPS and .379 wOBA against southpaws dating back to last year. His track record against left-handed pitchers shouldn't go overlooked in daily contests. Altuve is now up to 14 extra-base hits, 15 RBI and 18 runs with an .859 OPS through 25 games this month.
Altuve went 1-for-4 with a first-inning RBI double that proved to be the difference in Monday's 1-0 victory over Detroit. Altuve's ninth double of the season surprisingly held up on a night when the Astros deployed a committee of pitchers to fill in for Dallas Keuchel (neck). The second baseman is riding an eight-game hitting streak that includes seven extra-base hits (three doubles, two triples, and two homers), seven RBI and five runs. It's safe to say Altuve is running hot right now.
Altuve went 4-for-5 with two triples and two doubles in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Marlins. The last time a player hit two triples and doubles in the same game was in 2005 when Carl Crawford did it for Tampa Bay. Altuve's feat was just the 14th time it's occurred in MLB history. Making the accomplishment even odder was that he didn't score a run despite being in scoring position four times. Altuve, who leads the AL with a road batting average of .403, finished Houston's current trip hitting .379 (11-for-29) with six extra-base hits, five runs scored and four RBI in seven games.
Altuve went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and three RBI during Monday's win over Miami. Altuve was hit by a pitch on his hand in the top of the first inning, so it was encouraging to see him still have a productive game. The home run was his third of the month, and he's now up to six homers, 18 RBI, nine stolen bases and 24 runs with a .292/.364/.458 slash line for the season.
Altuve went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Angels. Altuve's third-inning homer, his fifth of the season, shifted the momentum in the game after the Angels jumped out to a 2-0 lead. The homer also atoned for him getting picked off first base in the first inning with Carlos Correa at the plate. A perennial MVP candidate, he's hitting a blistering .419 on the road this season compared to .236 at home, though those numbers should balance out as the season wears on. The Astros are off Monday and return to Houston for a quick two-game set against the Braves.
