Altuve went 2-for-4 with a homer and a pair of RBI in Wednesday's ALCS Game 4 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Altuve's sudden throwing issues have been the primary storyline surrounding him this season, though his bat has been just fine. He didn't make an error in this one, and his pair of RBI proved crucial in his team's 4-3 win. He opened the scoring with a solo shot off Tyler Glasnow in the bottom of the first and added another run two innings later on an RBI double. His five homers thus far in the playoffs already match his total from the regular season.

EDGE Analysis

Altuve staked Houston to an early lead with his leadoff blast of Blake Snell, but the Astros weren't able to muster much offense the rest of the way in the series opener. The second baseman endured a rough regular season, but his bat is heating up at the right time for Houston. He'll now left the yard in three consecutive postseason contests.
