Another fantastic month for Altuve saw him hit 45 times in August, tying a club record set by Alou. He went from.297 to.316 in the month by hitting .375.
In 154 games, he hit .313 with 200 hits and 38 steals to lead the league (but also 13 times caught stealing). His batting average was 1 for 4, but he had an RBI and a stolen base to help the Astros beat the Yankees in the Wild Card Game.
His solitary stolen base attempt in the Division Series was thwarted by Salvador Perez of the Kansas City Royals, who held him to only three hits in 22 at-bats (.136) with two runs and one RBI.
When the Cardinals beat the Royals 13-5 on June 25, 2016, he came within one hit of hitting for the cycle. Despite having already hit a single, double, and homer, he smashed one into the wall in the eighth inning.
As he raced toward second base in pursuit of the elusive triple, his helmet flew from his head and landed on his feet, sending him sprawling to the ground in a pratfall.
In the dugout, his teammates were joking with him, and then Carlos Correa doubled him in for the winning run. June’s American League Player of the Month award went to him because of his hitting average.
In 26 games, he hit .320, putting up 19 runs and 15 RBI. He led the American League in batting average and hits in the first half of the season with 113 in 81 games, a team record for the Astros.
