After George Springer went 6-for-6, hitting wizard Jose Altuve bowed down to him

George Springer went 6-for-6 during the Astros' 16-2 win over the A's on Monday night. He had four singles, a double and one massive 462-foot dinger.

Springer is the 70th player in big league history to accomplish the feat in nine innings and the 40th American Leaguer. He's also the first Astro (Joe Morgan notched six hits in 1965 as an Astro, but it included extra innings). 
Do you know what that deserves? That deserves a bow from one of the best hitters in baseball over the last five seasons: Springer's teammate José Altuve.

There's honestly no greater honor.
