Houston (USA), June 16 (EFE). Venezuelan second baseman Jose Altuve and goalkeeper Chas McCormick scored twice at home with the Houston Astros, who defeated the Texas Rangers 8-4.
Altuve (15) hit from four corners for the second day in a row, adding three home runs in two days.
The Venezuelan started the penalty kick against Rangers in the first half by penalizing the pitches by junior Jordan Lyles, with no lead or lead in the half.
In the eighth inning, he returned to hit a four-corner with no teammates before Ian Kennedy’s shots were closest, with two wins in the inning.
The first home flight from the Altuve flew at night over the fence of the central field, while the second strike, 392 feet high, came from the left.
Altuve has three home runs in two days and eight so far in June.
The Venezuelan made history in the league by scoring at home in the opening match after winning a Grand Slam the night before.
Altov, who in his 10th Grand Slam run on Tuesday, became the first player to score for Homer in the opening game after winning a Grand Slam.
Altuve hit the railroad track at the top of left field with two naysayers in the eighth inning to widen the lead to 8-4 and give him his fifth career in a multiplayer homer.
Altoff’s first drive was one of the four worst home runs of his career that Jordan Lyles had allowed.
McCormick (8) also hit twice over the wall in the second and sixth inning.
Puerto Rican player Martin Maldonado (5) also blew up the wall in the second half, with no teammates on his way against Lyles’ player.
The win was credited to rookie Zack Greinke (7-2) in 5 2/3 runs.
For Rangers, Ranger Eli White (2) is connected from four corners in the third and seventh inning.
Lyles charged the loss (2-5) with a seven-stroke penalty, four home runs and five runs.
