Tucker went 2-for-4 with two-run home run in Saturday's 6-5 win over Texas.
Tucker is mashing during Houston's homestand, something he attributed to adjustments following a miserable road trip, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. He's starting his stance earlier, allowing the front foot to plant earlier. That allows him to be on time for high-velocity fastballs and react to offspeed offerings. "Along with that," Tucker said, "also just not swinging at a bunch of pitches outside the strike zone and chasing." He was batting .179 with a .599 OPS when he returned from the road before feeding on home cooking at Minute Maid Park. The right fielder is 13-for-33 with four home runs, seven extra-base hits, 12 RBI and 11 runs scored since.
Tucker went 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 10-4 win over Texas.
Tucker poked an RBI single and came around to score in both the second and third innings of Friday's blowout victory. After he was stuck in a 3-for-23 slump, the 24-year-old outfielder is riding a six-game hitting streak that includes four multi-hit performances. He's raised his season OPS from .584 to .746 during that stretch.

Tucker opened the bottom half of the second with a walk and quickly notched his second steal of the season before eventually coming around to score, giving the Astros an early lead. He added a base hit in the eighth to spark a miraculous four-run rally. Despite this busy day, Tucker is only slashing .187/.222/.385 with five home runs, 15 RBI, 12 runs scored and a 4:18 BB:K.
Tucker went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Mariners.
Tucker's fourth-inning grounder got through the infield and plated Alex Bregman with the second run of the frame. His .182 batting average isn't much to look at -- it's even lower with runners in scoring position (.133) -- but Tucker has managed to knock in 15 runs, second on the team behind Yuli Gurriel.
Tucker went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 16-2 rout of the Angels.
His eighth-inning blast came off Angels catcher Anthony Bemboom, who took the mound to save further wear and tear on the bullpen, but it counts all the same. Tucker has had trouble stringing hits together to begin the season, but his luck may be turning. On the season, the 24-year-old is slashing just .177/.202/.405 through 20 games, albeit with a solid five homers, one steal, 10 runs and 13 RBI.
Tucker went 1-for-5 with a stolen base in Thursday's 8-2 win over the Angels.
It was a good night all around for the Astros, who won for the just the second time in 11 games. Tucker's fourth-inning single snapped an 0-for-15 bout of frustration, while the stolen base was his first this season.

Houston manager Dusty Baker is front-loading his impact hitters in the top half of the lineup while the team is without Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez due to health and safety protocols. That means a more prominent role for Tucker, who was 1-for-7 over the weekend as the leadoff batter. It may not be the best time to experiment with Tucker, but Baker has limited options right now. Tucker, who is batting .226 with a .682 OPS, bemoaned his pull-happy approach last week, per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, and is cognizant that he needs to swing through the ball.
Tucker batted leadoff and went 1-for-4 in Saturday's 1-0 win over Seattle.
With five Astros on the injured list due to health and safety protocols, manager Dusty Baker has been forced to ad-lib his lineup.

Tucker went 1-for-4 with a home run Saturday against the Athletics.
Tucker went deep to lead off the bottom of the seventh inning and spoil a shutout bid for Frankie Montas, and the slugger now has four homers on the season. Tucker might be hitting near the bottom of the order and owns a subpar .189 average thus far, but the power is real, and his .268/.323/.518 slash line in 80 big-league games over the prior two seasons suggests he'll start stringing together hits soon enough.
Tucker batted seventh and went 1-for-4 with a double in Thursday's 6-2 win over Oakland.
Tucker opened the season as the team's cleanup batter and thrived with six RBI over the first three games, but he's been dropped down since.

Tucker went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 7-6 loss to the Angels.
Tucker was dropped to sixth in the order, but he still managed to make an offensive impact. The homer was his second in as many games, and he extended his RBI streak to five contests. Though he's batting just .182 (4-for-22), Tucker is benefiting from the on-base machines at the top of the order, as he's already driven in eight runs.
Tucker went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Sunday against Oakland.
Tucker has yet to have a multi-hit game through his first four contests, but he's driven in seven runs and has now hit his first homer. That long ball came in the first inning off lefty Sean Manaea.

Tucker went 1-for-4 with three RBI in Friday's 9-5 win over Oakland.
