Altuve's 2015 200 hit campaign comes after winning the 2014 batting title (.341) and setting an Astros record for hits in a season (225).
Altuve is the first Astro to ever have 200 hits in two season with the team. Craig Biggio is the only other Astro to reach the mark -- 210 in 1998.
The Astros will now play the New York Yankees in the Wild Card round on Tuesday with Altuve batting leadoff.
