How many Altuves …

Jose was just a few Altuves short in this bid for a two-out, ninth-inning homer against the A’s on May 25 in the Juice Box. Instead, it was the last out of the game. The loss wasted a pair of two-homer performances by both Jason Castro and Matt Dominguez … the first time two Astro teammates had multi-HR games since Biggio and Berkman did it on July 25, 2005. Starter Lucas Harrell lasted just 1.2 innings, surrendering 6 runs — losing his focus when A’s cleanup hitter Seth Smith confounded the Astros’ trademark defensive shift by dropping a nasty bunt for a single.
