L.J. Hoes hit a go-ahead home run in the top of the twelfth inning, finishing a 1-for-5 night in style.
Hoes hit the solo shot against Fernando Abad. He is slashing just .178/.235/.308 on the season, but it's always nice to see random heroics as we enter the dog days of summer.
Jose Altuve went 3-for-6 with three singles in Tuesday's extra-innings victory over the A's.
These days, it feels strange if Jose Altuve doesn't have a multi-hit game. The diminutive second-baseman is slashing .338/.374/.444 atop Houston's lineup. He also has 41 steals, though he was caught stealing in this game for just the fourth time on the year.
