SAN DIEGO (AP) — José Altuve committed his fourth throwing error this postseason and third of the AL Championship Series in the sixth inning of the Astros’ 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 3. The star second baseman fielded Brandon Lowe’s grounder and then botched a routine toss to second on an attempted forceout of Randy Arozarena, bouncing his throw past shortstop Carlos Correa into left field with a noticeably awkward throwing motion. Altuve also made two throwing errors in Game 2 of the series, contributing significantly to the Astros’ 4-2 loss.
