Jose Altuve does serious bat flip after Game 7 home run
Jose Altuve came up big once again for his Houston Astros, and he did one heck of a bat flip to celebrate.
The Houston second baseman went opposite field on a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth inning of Game 7 of the ALCS on Saturday night to put his team up 2-0. The homer marked Altuve’s second of the series.
He also decided to take his bat for an extra long ride up the first base line before doing a huge bat flip.

Altuve was clearly pumped up about his homer:

Aaron Judge had previously robbed the Astros of a home run when he leaped up to snag one away from Yuli Gurriel. This one was out of his reach.
The likely AL MVP keeps doing MVP things for his Astros.
