Altuve standing tall again as Astros host Giants

HOUSTON -- The standard of excellence is so high for Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve, the reigning American League Most Valuable Player, that one weekend blip of stalled production rings alarms.

During the previous homestand -- a brief three-game set against the Texas Rangers, Altuve went 0-for-13 to drop his season average to .306. Altuve has yet to flash the surprising power that had become a part of his arsenal, leaving some to worry when he would find his stroke.

In the Astros' 11-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday at Minute Maid Park, Altuve extended his hitting streak to seven games with a 2-for-5 effort that included two RBIs. Since the Texas series, Altuve is batting .393 while Houston (31-18) has won five of seven heading into Wednesday's series finale against the San Francisco Giants.
