The Venezuelan star of the Houston Astros, José Altuve, hit the 29th homer of the season last Tuesday and is just two of his best mark in this department in the Major Leagues.
Altuve has nine games connecting at least one hit and in the 17 games he has played this month, only in two has he failed to hit.
‘AstroBoy’ is just 2 home runs away from reaching 31 home runs, a figure he achieved in the 2019 Major League Baseball season and so far it is his most home run year. Plus, he’s one away from hitting his second 30-homer year in the best baseball in the world.
To make matters worse, the second baseman became the hitter for life at Minute Maid Park on Friday, raising his total to 852.
In addition, the Creole is close to reaching a personal record of runs scored. This season Altuve has a total of 109 runs scored, approaching his personal record in the Major Leagues which is 112 – in 2017 -.
José Altuve, throughout his career in Las Mayores, has been known for being a great hitter, but also for being a good running back, making him a vital piece in his team’s offense.
Altuve is hitting .280 with 156 hits, 78 RBIs and 109 runs scored.
