Altuve went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and a stolen base in a loss to Oakland on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Altuve brought Houston to within a run with a solo shot to left field in the eighth inning but flied out with the tying run on base in the ninth. The 2017 AL MVP started off slowly this season but has been on fire since returning from a hamstring injury in mid-June, hitting .333 with 18 homers and 45 RBI in his last 306 at-bats.

Altuve went 3-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and a second run scored in Monday's 15-0 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Altuve has hit safely in 15 of the last 16 games, slashing .364/.394/.652 during that stretch. That's just one chunk of games during a monster second half in which he's been a different hitter than he was in the first half. That suggests the hamstring injury he dealt with during May and June played a role in his depressed early season numbers. Altuve, who had .781 OPS in 55 first-half games, has a 1.051 OPS over 54 games since the All-Star break.
