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)

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.
Nothing small about these players
Altuve, Houston's 5-foot-6 second baseman, makes Cari Champion's list of the top five athletes under six feet tall. The youngest on this list, Altuve joins Serena Williams, Lionel Messi, Russell Wilson and Antonio Brown.
