Astros 3B Luis Valbuena good early in games, struggling late
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena has proven thus far to be a much stronger hitter earlier in games than he is late, leading to a campaign in which he has seven home runs thus far, but is barely hitting over .200. 

In innings 1-3, Valbuena is hitting .268/.326/.585 with four home runs and seven RBI. However, once pitchers either figure out how to approach him or when relievers enter the game, Valbuena struggles. In innings 4-6, he's at .156/.229/.313 and during innings 7-9, Valbuena has a .189/.268/.378 slash line.
