MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jose Altuve had four hits following a brief absence from the lineup, Carlos Correa homered and drove in four runs, and the Houston Astros beat the Minnesota Twins 7-5 on Tuesday night.

Altuve was given the night off during Monday's series opener, ending the longest active streak in the majors at 202 consecutive games played. He didn't miss a beat one day later, going 4 for 4 with a run and an RBI. His third hit helped spark a three-run sixth inning for the Astros, and his fourth drove in Tony Kemp for a 6-4 lead in the seventh.

The All-Star second baseman has reached base safely in 39 straight road games, the longest current run in the majors.

Correa hit a two-run shot and tied his career high for RBIs. Houston had gone seven games without a home run.
