Jose Altuve smacks bases loaded double to lead Astros to win

Jose Altuve went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI as the Astros beat the Angels 5-3.

Fantasy Impact:

Altuve had the big hit of the game, doubling with the bases juiced erasing a 3-1 deficit and giving the 'Stros the late lead. Altuve has been struggling (by his standards, at any rate) in May but still sports a superb .311/.366/.412 line though the most glaring issue is his lack of pop given his last few seasons. He's only got the two homers on the year and, perhaps even more surprisingly, only two steals on three attempts as well but he's driven in 20 runs batting in the top third of a potent lineup so there's likely a correction by way of a hot streak in the future.
