Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - SUNDAY PUNCH -

“Af­ter the last game of the sea­son, we did a lit­tle toast to (Astros sec­ond base­man Jose Al­tuve) for win­ning the bat­ting ti­tle and I told him, ‘Con­grat­u­la­tions, and you’re wel­come.’ Be­cause I gave a cou­ple of those hits to him. So I feel like that was just my small part in do­nat­ing to his bat­ting ti­tle.”

Hous­ton Astros pitcher Justin Ver­lan­der, who was dealt from Detroit at the Au­gust trade dead­line. Al­tuve has a .563 ca­reer bat­ting av­er­age against the for­mer Goochland and Old Do­min­ion stand­out.
