Altuve in some rare company

• 2B Jose Altuve set an Astros franchise record by recording a steal in 6 consecutive games…has recorded multiple steals in 4 consecutive games…is the 3rd player in the Modern era and the 1st since Ray Chapman in 1917 to record multiple steals in 4 straight games…his 36 steals lead the AL and are a new career high for a single season (had 35 total steals in 2013).
• Altuve increased his Major League-leading hits total to 116 on the season…is just 7 hits shy of Bob Watson’s Astros franchise record for hits prior to the All-Star Break (123 hits set in 1973)…today was his 35th multi-hit game of the year, which leads the Majors…was his 4th consecutive multi-hit game…has recorded multiple hits in 9 of his last 12 games…has hit over .500 in his last 14 games since June 12 (.509, 28-for-55).
• Altuve hit his 100th career double today, becoming just the 12th player in franchise history to compile 100 career doubles and 100 career steals…the others are Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell, Cesar Cedeno, Jose Cruz, Jimmy Wynn, Terry Puhl, Kevin Bass, Bill Doran, Enos Cabell, Derek Bell and Joe Morgan

Well, we know you can’t hold down a good man, and it looks like we have one in Altuve, he is “mister Baseball” and he’s not going to stop, the man determine to be the best, it shows, he loves baseball !!!        Ralph

       

So happy to see Jose doing so well. Looks like his hard work in the off-season has totally paid off, not only with his hitting, but he seems faster on the base path as well.

We’ve always known what a great player Jose is here, but so glad the rest of the MLB is getting a chance to see it now too!
