TORONTO -- For the first time since late April, Astros infielder Jose Altuve failed to reach base in a road game. Dale Hawerchuk Jersey .Troy Tulowitzki and Russell Martin hit back-to-back home runs, Marcus Stroman pitched 6 1/3 innings to win for the first time in four starts and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Houston 9-2 on Sunday.Carlos Correa had three singles, extending his hitting streak to 10 games, and Jason Castro hit a solo home run for the Astros, who lost their second straight following a four-game win streak.Altuve, the American League batting leader, went 0 for 4 and failed to reach safely for the first time in 44 road games. His average dropped to .362.We often go the way he goes, manager A.J. Hinch said. Im sure everybody in the ballpark is pretty surprised when he doesnt get on base. He puts up good at bats. He did the best he could but every good thing comes to an end.Altuves 43-game streak matched Jeff Bagwell (1998) for second-longest in team history. Bagwell also holds the record for longest streak, reaching safely in 51 straight road games in 1999.Altuve stayed in the game after fouling a pitch off his left foot in the first inning. He hadnt been kept off base in a road game since April 29 at Oakland, when he went 0 for 4, snapping a 19-game on-base streak.Tulowitzki joined Edwin Encarnacion, Josh Donaldson and Michael Saunders as Blue Jays with 20 or more home runs. Toronto and Baltimore are the only two teams in the majors to boast four hitters with 20 or more homers.Toronto has 166 home runs this season, second to Baltimore. The Orioles entered play Sunday with 174.Thats what we do best, manager John Gibbons said.Encarnacion hit his 33rd home run, a solo blast off Luke Gregerson, as Blue Jays won for the eighth time in 10 meetings with the Astros. Encarnacion and Baltimores Mark Trumbo are tied for most in the majors.Containing Torontos powerful bats proved too much for the Astros, who dropped two of three to the AL East leaders.They never let up, Hinch said of the Blue Jays. Their offense is pretty potent when it gets going.Toronto (67-51) is a season-best 16 games above .500.Houston right-hander Mike Fiers (8-6) allowed five runs and seven hits in 4 2/3 innings.Tulowitzki went 3 for 4 with three RBI. He hit an RBI single in the first, singled and scored in the fourth, and homered in the fifth, his 20th.(Fiers) went with the fastball, it leaked over the plate and Tulo did some damage with it, Hinch said.Martin followed with a first-pitch blast, the seventh time this season Toronto has hit consecutive home runs.First-pitch changeup, Fiers said. It seemed like he was sitting on it.Fiers has surrendered five home runs in his past two outings.They made me pay in that one inning, Fiers said. A couple of swings and the game is changed.Martin also made the defensive play of the game, leaning into Houstons first base dugout to catch Alex Bregmans foul pop up in the seventh.For a catcher, thats as good an opportunity youre going to get to make a nice play, Martin said. It felt good for sure.Stroman (9-5) allowed two runs, one earned, and five hits to win for the first time since July 20 at Arizona.CANADIAN CLUBBERSMartin and Michael Saunders (20) are the second pair of Canadian teammates to hit 10 or more home runs in a season. The first to do it were Corey Koskie (25) and Justin Morneau (19) for Minnesota in 2004.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: OF Jake Marisnick (right groin) missed his fourth straight game.

NEW YORK -- Mets third baseman David Wright expects to resume baseball activities next month following back surgery last spring.General manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday the Mets captain will report to the teams Florida complex in January, a month or more ahead of spring training. Wright, who turns 34 on Dec. 20, had surgery June 16 to repair a herniated disk in his neck and is in California.Hes simulating baseball activities at this point. Hes still under the thumb of his back doctor, Alderson said at the teams holiday party. So once he gets back to the East Coast and we have better access to him, well ramp him up. I dont think its because he cant. Its just part of the routine. Its not like hes had a setback.Alderson said Wrights activities included running, getting in crouches and moving laterally, but not swinging a bat or even emulating a swing. Wright plans to report to Port St. Lucie, Florida, in early to mid-January.After missing much of 2015 with a strained right hamstring and spinal stenosis, Wright hit .226 this year with seven homers, 14 RBI and 55 strikeouts in 137 at-bats.Noah Syndergaard played Santa -- wearing a blue suit for Mets colors -- at the party for children and was assisted byy a pair of teammates as elves, Jose Reyes and Brandon Nimmo. Nathan Beaulieu Jersey. eyes, who returned to the Mets last summer and played third base in Wrights absence, will get time in the outfield during spring training. He has played one game in the outfield as a professional, at rookie-level Kingsport in 2000.Im ready to do whatever they ask me to do, said Reyes, a four-time All-Star at shortstop. Im looking forward to the experience.New York has not decided whether to give closer Jeurys Familia (Dominican Republic) and infielder Asdrubal Cabrera (Venezuela) permission to play winter ball to prepare for the World Baseball Classic in March. Familia faces a possible domestic violence suspension, and Cabrera is coming off a knee injury.Its something we want to be very careful with, Alderson said.Alderson noted young outfielders Michael Conforto and Brandon Nimmo were on Italys preliminary roster. Conforto was born in Seattle and Nimmo in Cheyenne, Wyoming.All the players whose names end in `O will be playing for Italy, Alderson quipped. Thats the key to a passport, as I understand it. Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '
