Maldonado went 1-for-5 with a triple and a run scored in Friday's 9-2 win over Tampa Bay.

Maldonado's fourth-inning triple snapped an 0-for-10 skid and was just his sixth hit in 59 at-bats (.102). The Astros' potent offense can afford to carry a light-hitting catcher, so Maldonado will maintain his role as the team's primary catcher.
