“One two count, oof,” Bill Krueger of Root Sports said during the replay. “Give him all the time.”
Altuve was able to continue on in the at-bat thankfully, registering a hit to make up for the gaffe.
Jose Altuve fouled a ball off his groin and then got a hit. The Legend continues.

The veteran second baseman left the field shortly after the inning was over and did not return to the game.
Not good news for Astros fans as Altuve just came back from injury this week, smacking his first home run since returning Tuesday night.
Jose Altuve 💣💣💣
