      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Big day Sunday

      Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a walk, a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Athletics.Andrus got involved immediately with a two-run triple in the first inning and, after Nomar Mazara was hit by a pitch, stole home on Oakland starter Brett Anderson's slow pickoff move to first base. He later helped fuel Texas' come-from-behind win with a solo home run in the seventh. This was the fourth consecutive multi-hit game for Andrus, whose .414 batting average ranks third in MLB.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Looking to rebound

      Elvis Andrus went 1-for-2 with an RBI in Friday's game against the White Sox.Andrus will be looking to rebound from an injury-marred 2018 season that saw him finish with a career-low .256 batting average. He also dropped from 20 home runs and 88 RBI in 2017 to six and 33, respectively, last season. An early season fractured elbow interrupted what had been a hot start (.926 OPS, 14 games) and impacted his offense upon returning in June. "I was still having some discomfort, especially when I was swinging," Andrus told T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com. "Throwing-wise, not really. Maybe if I lowered my angle I felt it a little bit, but mostly it was my hitting." Andrus is expected to occupy the third spot in the batting order.
