Altuve, Astros roar back to life behind Verlander

12:07 AM ET HOUSTON — When the rally towel-waving fans at Minute Maid Park last fixed their gaze on Jose Altuve, he was making a mad dash around the bases and sliding safely across home plate to score the winning run for the Houston Astros on Saturday night.
