Altuve hit .313/.353/.459 with 15 home runs, 66 RBI and 38 steals during the regular season, which earned him All-Star honors for the third time in his young career. However, the multi-hit machine is 1-for-6 lifetime against Friday's starter Johnny Cueto.

      Astros' Jose Altuve shakes off collision, hits two homers Saturday

      Astros second baseman Jose Altuve showed no ill effects from Friday's collision with Carlos Correa, going 2 for 4 Saturday with a walk and two solo shots, giving him 14 home runs on the season. Correa cranked two home runs of his own in the game, but the Astros aren't likely to encourage their two star middle infielders to bump into each other again looking for a repeat performance. Altuve's 14 homers double his previous career high, but his .315 batting average and 38 steals are right in line with expectations.
