Luis Valbuena leads Astros with two hits, two RBI

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/26/15) Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena went 2 for 4 with two RBI in Tuesday's win over Baltimore. 

Valbuena drove in his first runs in seven games and hit his sixth double of the year. 

Valbuena now has 18 RBI this year. 

Astros' 3B Luis Valbuena has seven game hitting streak

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/15) After going 1 for 4 on Wednesday, Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena has exactly one hit in each of his last seven games, covering 25 at-bats in that span. Valbuena does have three home runs during the streak, however and has been a consistent presence in the Astros' lineup in 2015. 

Marlins pitcher Mat Latos expected to make start on Thursday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/18/15) Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena is out of the starting lineup on Monday against the Athletics, the team announced.

Jonathan Villar will draw the start at third with Marwin Gonzalez starting at shortstop. Valbuena had started the last 13 games in a row for Houston. He is hitting .206 with 16 RBI in 136 at-bats this season.

The Astros are currently the favorites (-120) against Oakland.

Astros' Luis Valbuena cracks 10th home run of the season

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/15) Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena went 1 for 4 at the plate in Houston's 4-2 win over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Valbuena did his damage in the first inning when he crushed a Mark Buehrle pitch out of the park for a solo home run, his 10th of the season.

Valbuena is now hitting .206 with 16 RBI in 136 at-bats this season.

Astros 3B Luis Valbuena good early in games, struggling late

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/11/15) Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena has proven thus far to be a much stronger hitter earlier in games than he is late, leading to a campaign in which he has seven home runs thus far, but is barely hitting over .200. 

In innings 1-3, Valbuena is hitting .268/.326/.585 with four home runs and seven RBI. However, once pitchers either figure out how to approach him or when relievers enter the game, Valbuena struggles. In innings 4-6, he's at .156/.229/.313 and during innings 7-9, Valbuena has a .189/.268/.378 slash line.
