Adrian Beltre went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Beltre put the Rangers on the board with a solo home run off Dallas Keuchel in the sixth inning. The veteran slugger has collected nine hits -- including three extra-base hits -- in his last four games. He is slashing a strong .311/.381/.540 with 12 homers and 48 RBI in 235 at-bats for the season as a whole. Had he not missed the first two months of the campaign with a calf injury, his counting stats would be even more substantial. He has done no wrong with the bat since returning to action at the end of May.

Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI to pace the Rangers as they downed the Astros 8-3 on Saturday.

Beltre did his damage with a pair of hits, an RBI double in the fifth inning and a two-run single in the sixth. The month of August has found him well, as the 38-year-old is working on a seven-game hitting streak and is 12-for-40 with two doubles, two homers, 11 RBI and three runs scored since the start of the month. The future Hall-of-Famer is now hitting .306/.375/.526 overall.

Adrian Beltre collected his 3,000th career hit with a double in Sunday's 10-6 loss to the Orioles.

With the double, Beltre became the 31st hitter in major league history to pick up 3,000 knocks in his career. He also became the first Dominican-born player to achieve the feat. The future Hall of Famer has shown no signs of slowing down with the bat at age 38 and is slashing a strong .307/.382/.534 with nine homers and 36 RBI in 51 games played this season.
Jul 30 - 6:58 PM

Adrian Beltre finished 1-for-4 in Saturday's game against the Orioles, giving him 2,999 hits for his career.

It wasn't all great for the future Hall of Famer, as he committed his first error of the season on a throw. He is looking to not only become the 31st player in major league history to reach the 3,000-hit milestone, but he would be the first Dominican-born player in the exclusive club. He is 6-for-21 (.286) with a home run and four RBI in his career against Sunday's starter LHP Wade Miley.

Adrian Beltre continued his chase for 3,000 career hits on Friday against the Orioles by going 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles and a run scored.

Beltre had a broken-bat bloop single in the third inning and a single up the middle in the fifth. By going 9-for-14 over his last four games, he’s now just two hits shy of becoming the 31st player to reach 3,000 career hits. History is right around the corner for the future Hall of Famer.

Adrian Beltre had a nice night at the dish in Wednesday's loss to the Marlins, going 3-for-3 with a homer and two doubles.

Beltre also drew a walk, reaching base safely in each of his four plate appearances. He scored twice and drove home a pair of runs in the contest. The veteran third baseman is enjoying another terrific season, slashing .307/.387/.545 with nine homers and 34 RBI.
Jul 27 - 12:17 AM

Adrian Beltre was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Marlins for moving the on-deck circle.

You cannot make this stuff up. Beltre was asked to get in the on-deck circle by the umpire, only to drag it a good five or six over to the spot where he was standing at the time. He was then tossed from the game. Given that the Marlins are currently leading the Rangers 18-8 in the eighth inning, it is understandable that there might be some pent up frustration in the Texas dugout.

Adrian Beltre went 4-for-4 in the Rangers' loss to the Marlins on Monday.

Beltre singled in all four of his trips to the plate, though he finished with zero runs scored and zero RBI in Miami's 4-0 blanking of Texas. The 38-year-old third baseman now has 2,993 hits for his career -- seven away from 3,000.
Jul 24 - 10:48 PM

Jul 14 - 11:56 PM

Adrian Beltre cracked a two-run home run off of Angels starter Jesse Chavez in Saturday's game.

Beltre has just seven homers across 125 at-bats, but two of the clouts with five RBI have come over the past two outings. They're the first homers since he went on a three-game power binge from June 25-27, racking up three bombs and six RBI. He still has plenty left in the tank at 38 years old to be a fantasy factor in the second half.
Jul 9 - 2:16 AM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Angels.

The homer was Beltre's sixth in 33 games this year. He's 6-for-12 with two doubles and the homer in his last three games, raising his overall line to .289/.385/.521. Assuming a healthier second half, big things should still be in store for the 38-year-old.
Jul 8 - 12:37 AM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead homer off Cody Allen in the top of the ninth as the Rangers edged the Indians 2-1 on Tuesday.

Beltre has homered in three straight games after totaling two homers in his first 21 games back from the disabled list. Those who held on to him for the duration of his injuries have been well rewarded thus far.
Jun 27 - 10:26 PM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a double in Monday's loss to the Indians.

Following an RBI double by Nomar Mazara to put runners on second and third in the first inning, Beltre connected off Carlos Carrasco for a three-run homer. He has gone yard in back-to-back contests and has now picked up seven extra-base hits in his last eight games, including four homers.
