Altuve, McHugh surprise early on

Jose Altuve is on pace for a 35 home run and 65 stolen base season. Ron Shandler says 20 homers and 40 stolen bags is more likely. Meanwhile, Shandler says not to get discouraged by Collin McHugh's 7.56 ERA. Which surging, slumping players will continue? (Insider)

Believe in Rasmus (1:07)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Great heads-up play by Ketel Marte of the Mariners. Robinson Cano's base hit off Dallas Keuchel plated two runs for a 4-0 lead and sent Marte to third. Cano rounded first too far, drawing a throw and a rundown, but as soon as Tyler White turned his back, Marte dashed home with another run. The Astros' woes continue.
