Altuve went 3-for-6 with a run-scoring single, two-RBI double and two-run homer in Friday's 15-8 victory over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The AL MVP candidate did damage to Orioles pitching throughout the game. He plated George Springer and Alex Bregman in the second with a two-bagger, launched a mammoth 448-foot blast to left center in the sixth that brought Bregman home and then extended the Astros lead to 13-8 with his seventh-inning single that drove in Springer. The All-Star infielder is slashing .411/.442/.644 over 73 at-bats in August has his average up to a whopping .365 on the season.

Altuve homered and scored twice in a 2-for-6 game in a win Monday over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Altuve continues to extend his career high in home runs. After hitting 15 in 154 games last year, he now has 19 in just 105 this season. He already has 25 steals this year, so his next home run will add him to the 20-20 club. If he can get that home run soon, he might be the first to reach 20-20 this season -- however, he'll have to be quick, as Wil Myers is just one stolen base away.
