Houston's Altuve leaves game with jaw injury
Detroit's Jhonny Peralta lifted a popup behind first base in the second inning. Altuve and Paredes and first baseman Chris Carter converged on the ball, which came loose when Altuve and Paredes ran into each other. Altuve stayed down for a bit, then was able to get up. The Astros described the injury as a subluxation of the right jaw.
Altuve has been a bright spot for Houston this year, hitting .333.
