Shades of Craig Biggio for Jose Altuve

Altuve went 3-for-5 with two homers and six RBIs on Sunday. The only other second baseman in Astros history with multiple homers and at least six RBIs in a game is Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, who accomplished the feat at Wrigley Field on Aug. 23, 1998, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Astros call up top prospect Alex Bregman

The Houston Astros called up top prospect Alex Bregman, the No. 2 overall selection in the 2015 MLB draft, after their win Sunday.

Altuve

Jose Altuve wasted no time

The Astros' second baseman homered off the Angels' Tim Lincecum in the first inning of Sunday's game at Minute Maid Park and again in the second inning. That gives Altuve 18 home runs in 2016, already three more than his previous season's high.
