by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/30/15) Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena had two more hits on Monday, going 2 for 4 with two runs scored in the 6-1 win over the Royals.

Despite his .199 season batting average, Valbuena has been rolling at the plate recently, batting .320 with two home runs over his last seven games. He has reached base safely via a hit, walk or hit-by-pitch in each of his last nine games.

Astros' Luis Valbuena collects three RBI in Tuesday's win

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/24/15) Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena went 3 for 5 at the plate with three RBI to help send the Astros to a 13-3 win over the Angels on Tuesday.

Valbuena hit his 18th home run of the season when he hit a solo shot off C.J. Wilson in the fourth inning. He would later hit his 19th home run off Cam Bedrosian in the fifth inning. He also scored three runs during the contest.

Prior to his three-hit game Tuesday, Valbuena was hitting .222 with five home runs and 11 RBI in his last 10 games.

Astros 3B Luis Valbuena hits another home run on Saturday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/21/15) Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena continued his recent power surge, as he launched his 17th home run of the season on Saturday. Valbuena pounded a Taijuan Walker pitch in the second inning over the wall for a solo home run to give his club an early 2-0 advantage.

It wouldn't be enough, however, as the Mariners topped the Astros 6-3 on Saturday. The power-hitting Valbuena has hit seven of his 17 home runs in 17 games this month. However, he is batting just .175 over that span.

Astros 3B Luis Valbuena slugs two home runs on Tuesday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/16/15) Astros third baseman Luis Valbuena had quite an afternoon on Tuesday. Valbuena belted his 15th and 16th home runs of the season in the 8-5 victory over the Rockies.

Valbuena's first of the game was a solo shot in the second inning to pull the Astros to within a run. He didn't wait long to hit his second homer, as he went yard in the third inning with a three-run shot to put the Astros up 7-3.

The slugging third baseman still sports a lowly .188 batting average on the season, but he has six home runs in 13 games this month.
