Altuve batted .357 with an MLB-best six home runs to go with nine runs scored, eight RBI, and a 1.400 OPS.
Last week, the second baseman began with two home runs followed by three more against the Texas Rangers -- becoming the only Major Leaguer since 1900 to do so.
The Houston Astros are set to face the Oakland A’s at Minute Maid Park from Sept. 11-13 followed by two more series at home against the Baltimore Orioles and the Kansas City Royals.
