Altuve Hits 3 Home Runs in Astros’ Playoff Opener
HOUSTON (AP) — Jose Altuve has hit three home runs for the Houston Astros against Boston in Game 1 of the AL Division Series.
Altuve led the majors in batting this year. He is listed at just 5-foot-6.
This was the 10th time that a player had homered three times in a postseason game. Babe Ruth did it twice.
Pablo Sandoval was the last player to hit three homers in a postseason game, doing it for San Francisco in the 2012 World Series opener against Detroit.
