Altuve debuts, Jordan Alvarez doubles and Abreu triples, Houston beats Oakland – Full Swing

Kyle Tucker hit a pivotal home run, José Altuve made his season debut, José Abreu drove in two runs, and the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics, 5–1, for their fifth consecutive win and their eighth in nine recent challenges. Won the victory

Tucker hit a two-run home run in the sixth off Jose Abreu to deep right field, which was the deciding factor in the final result. It was a great night for Tucker who drove in another in the fourth inning and hit his seventh home run of the year.

Tucker doubled in the fourth to drive in Jordan Alvarez, who led off with a double of his own over the top of the center-field wall.

There was much anticipation for Altuve’s 2023 debut at Minute Maid Park. The 33-year-old veteran had been on the disabled list since breaking his right thumb on March 18 while playing for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic. Altuve went 0-for-4 with a walk.

Astros starter Brandon Bielk (1-1) pitched five innings, allowing one run and five hits, walking three and striking out nine.

Alex Bregman singled in the eighth to drive in Jake Meyers to put Houston up 5–1, which would be the final score. Oakland’s only run came in the third when Shea Langeliers hit a double to left-center to drive in Esteri Ruiz.

Oakland has lost 10 of the last 12 games. At 10–36, the A’s had their worst start in 46 games since Baltimore started 9–37 in 1988.

Jordan Alvarez went 2 for 5 with a double and a run after fouling out five times against Chicago last Wednesday and breaking a 40-game on-base streak.
