Astros 3B Luis Valbuena hits another home run on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena continued his recent power surge, as he launched his 17th home run of the season on Saturday. Valbuena pounded a Taijuan Walker pitch in the second inning over the wall for a solo home run to give his club an early 2-0 advantage.

It wouldn't be enough, however, as the Mariners topped the Astros 6-3 on Saturday. The power-hitting Valbuena has hit seven of his 17 home runs in 17 games this month. However, he is batting just .175 over that span.

Astros 3B Luis Valbuena slugs two home runs on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena had quite an afternoon on Tuesday. Valbuena belted his 15th and 16th home runs of the season in the 8-5 victory over the Rockies.

Valbuena's first of the game was a solo shot in the second inning to pull the Astros to within a run. He didn't wait long to hit his second homer, as he went yard in the third inning with a three-run shot to put the Astros up 7-3.

The slugging third baseman still sports a lowly .188 batting average on the season, but he has six home runs in 13 games this month.
