Astros 3B Luis Valbuena hits two home runs Monday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena connected on two home runs to help lead the Astros to a 7-5 win over the Mariners on Monday.

"This last week he's been about as hot as anybody, and he's doing some damage with his swing," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said after the game, per MLB.com. "He's played a good third base, he's a good baseball player and I'm glad he's on our club. I love having him around."

Valbuena hit his fourth home run of the season when he connected on a solo home run off Hisashi Iwakuma during the first inning. During the eighth inning, he hit another solo shot off Danny Farquhar for his fifth homer of the season.

"I tried to backdoor the cutter there and left it over the middle, and he hit it over the fence," Farquhar said.

Valbuena is now batting .244 on the season.

3B Luis Valbuena delivers for Astros
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Luis Valbuena had a big day for the Astros in their 4-3 triumph over the Angels on Sunday, reaching base three times and connecting for his third home run of the season. 

Valbuena got the Astros on the board in the third inning when he tagged a pitch by Garrett Richards over the wall in left for a 353-foot homer to make it 2-0 Houston. Valbuena also walked twice and stole a base.

"It was good," Valbuena said of his homer. "It was a good pitch I was looking for, and I was being aggressive. He threw me a pitch where I wanted, and I hit it hard and the ball [went]."
