Span went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Astros on Friday.

Span legged out a hit to shortstop in the sixth inning, plating Dee Gordon with the tying run in the process. The veteran outfielder is on a six-game hitting streak, and he's gone 7-for-11 with a triple, a home run, four RBI, a walk and three runs over his last three games. Span continues to offer considerably more at the plate than Guillermo Heredia, his platoon partner in left field. Consequently, he should continue seeing the majority of starts there, with the occasional day off against southpaws.
