Jose Altuve went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.
The line was fairly standard for the diminutive second baseman, but it was noteworthy for the fact that Altuve passed Craig Biggio for the Astros' record for hits in a single season. He's got 211 for the season, and the Astros still have a week and a half for Altuve to pad his lead. The 24-year-old is batting a ridiculous .343/.379/.456 for the year. Sep 16 - 11:42 PM

The big day extended a nine-game hitting streak for the 24-year-old, who is now batting .336 with an .815 OPS.
