Jose Altuve hit a single in the ninth inning on Tuesday night to give him 1,000 hits in his Major League career.
"I'm so proud of that guy," A.J. Hinch said. "He continues to be exceptional, and to have that moment where, in front of our home crowd, he can get his 1,000th hit in a very short time in his career is a real highlight in my career."
Altuve reached the milestone in 786 games, making him the fastest to do so in Houston Astros history and second-fastest among active players behind Ichiro Suzuki, who did it in his 696th game.
"I feel right now like I don't want to stop," Altuve said. "I want to keep getting better and help my team, and I'm not going to be [satisfied] until I take my team to the World Series."
At 26 years and 102 days old, Altuve is the ninth-youngest in Major League history to reach 1,000 hits, older than only Ty Cobb, Al Kaline, Alex Rodriguez, Robin Yount, Hank Aaron, Tris Speaker, George Brett and Derek Jeter.
