Bregman will serve as the Astros' leadoff hitter for Game 4 of the ALCS against Boston on Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Manager A.J. Hinch will try and shake things up after Houston only managed to scratch across two runs during Tuesday's defeat. In that outing, Bregman provided a pair of the club's seven hits, going 2-for-3 with one RBI and a walk. George Springer will bat second while Jose Altuve moves to the third spot in the order.
Bregman will not start the first game of Saturday's twinbill versus Baltimore but is set to bat third and start at shortstop for the nightcap, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Manager A.J. Hinch will give each of his regulars some rest during the doubleheader, so Bregman will take a seat for the matinee, with J.D. Davis starting at third base and batting seventh.
Bregman went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jays. Bregman gave Houston an early lead with a two-run homer in the first inning. It was Bregman's 31st homer of the season and snapped a drought of 14 games without one, a stretch in which the third baseman hit just .163 (8-for-49). With the Astros clinching the AL West on Tuesday, Bregman and other regulars may get some days off over the final five days of the regular season.
Bregman went 2-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Tigers. Bregman's two-run double in the fifth gave Houston a lead it would never relinquish. The two RBI were his 99th and 100th of the season while the double was his 50th, making him the only third baseman to hit 50 doubles and 30 home runs in a season. The last player to accomplish that feat was Albert Pujols.
Bregman went 2-for-3 with a home run, two walks and five RBI in Wednesday's win over the Twins. It was a monster day at the plate for Bregman, starting off with a two-run homer in the third and capped off by a three-RBI double in the eighth. The 25-year-old is on a tear, homering in four of the last five games while hitting .446 (29-for-65) over his last 17 games, as he moves into the top five in the American League with 96 RBI.
