The Houston Astros frequently witness dazzling defensive plays from their infield – they just usually come from second baseman Jose Altuve.

At the time of the play, the Astros were trailing 1-0. They’d later go on to win 5-2 in come-from-behind fashion, perhaps energized by Gonzalez’s stellar play.
