White Sox hope to slow streaking Astros

Jose Altuve, a six-time All-Star, three-time batting champ and 2017 American League Most Valuable Player, missed his 10th consecutive game Tuesday for the Houston Astros, who improved to 9-1 during that stretch without arguably their most indispensable performer.

George Springer, an early front-runner for league MVP honors, sat for a second consecutive game, yet the Astros won again, earning at least a split of their four-game series with the visiting Chicago White Sox with a 5-1 victory at Minute Maid Park.

The Astros have lauded their roster depth, and the clearest indication that their words don't ring hollow is how they've performed while short-handed. Tuesday presented another example of their exceptional wealth of talent as they won for the 12th time in 13 games.
