The Houston Astros had two players in the 2016 All-Star Game on Tuesday at Petco Park in San Deigo. Second baseman Jose Altuve batted leadoff for the American League and closer Will Harris was ready in the bullpen.

Altuve had a less than a stellar night at the plate, going 0-for-3 at the plate. But Altuve had an interesting night in the field. In the second inning, he made a nice play on a deflection off Corey Kluber to get Buster Posey.

In the third inning, Altuve attempted to two but had to deal with Carlos Gonzalez's slimmer spikes in his face.

In the fifth inning, Altuve misplayed a ball from Daniel Murphy. The play was originally called an out but was overturned by replay.

Will Harris entered the game in the eighth inning with bases loaded and the score 4-2. Harris struck Aledmys Diaz to end the threat.
