ARLINGTON, Texas — Jose Altuve was more than due when he came to bat in the 10th inning, and got a winning rally started for the Houston Astros. "He hadn't gotten a hit in four at-bats," manager A.J. Hinch said of the second basemen who led the American League in hits each of the past four seasons and is the MLB leader so far this year. Altuve was actually in an 0-for-13 slide before his fifth at-bat Wednesday night against the Texas Rangers. His 115th hit of the season was a one-out single off Chris Martin, who then hit Yuli Gurriel with a pitch before an errant pickoff throw allowed both runners to move up. That set up Evan Gattis' tiebreaking sacrifice fly in a 5-4 victory. By Stephen Hawkins. SENT: 860 words, photos.
ARLINGTON, Texas — Rangers reliever Tony Barnette won't throw for at least four weeks after an MRI revealed a strained lat muscle. Barnette had the MRI exam Wednesday, a day after leaving a game in the middle of a batter. The team had initially said the right-hander had a shoulder strain after he came out of Tuesday night's game. SENT: 220 words, photos.
