Jose Altuve Hits for the Cycle at Fenway

29 August, 2023

In Monday’s game against the Boston Red Sox, José Altuve was one home run short of completing the cycle. He got it done.

A two-run home run by the Astros second baseman gave Houston a 13-4 advantage over the visiting side as he sent a Kyle Barraclough fastball traveling at 90 mph over the Green Monster.

He started the cycle, the first of his career and the ninth in Astros history, with a double in the third, a single in the fifth, and a triple in the sixth. He went 4 of 6 for the night, hit a home run, and had four runs scored and four RBI. The Astros triumphed 13-5. After striking out in the first inning, he completed everything.

Given that the Astros are involved in a competitive three-team contest for the AL West, Altuve’s offensive outburst came at a good moment. With the victory, they stayed in a tie for second place with the Texas Rangers and one game behind the Seattle Mariners (75-58). They also held a 2.5-game advantage over the Toronto Blue Jays in the race for the final AL wild-card spot.
