He doesn’t have to carry us for our team to be good, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of Altuve. Obviously when we’re at our best he’s an integral part of that, but I don’t think there’s a lot of pressure on any of our guys to have to be the guy. That’s the way this team’s built, it’s the way that we perform. If we’re operating at a great level, if he does have a bad stretch or an 0-for-4, usually someone else is stepping up and doing well.
A lot of it gets fixated on Jose because he’s hitting third or second and he’s a marquee player and a superstar player, but the reality is if we’re the best version of ourselves our team is pretty deep and can we beat you from any time in the order.
Right-hander Justin Verlander (5-2, 1.05 ERA) gets the start for the Astros on Wednesday in the series finale. Verlander leads the majors in ERA, WHIP (0.72), opponent batting average (.148) and opponent OPS (.449), and is coming off his first complete game of the season, a 2-0 victory over the Angels.
Verlander has faced the Giants once previously, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and one walk with seven strikeouts over six innings while pitching for the Detroit Tigers in an 8-6 loss at AT&T Park on June 16, 2008. Verlander did not factor into the decision.
