Elvis Andrus went 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the Rangers beat the Braves 12-8 in the first half of Wednesday's day-night doubleheader.

Andrus is now batting .305/.345/.495 with 20 home runs, 80 RBI, 23 stolen bases, and 90 runs scored through 134 games here in 2017.

Elvis Andrus went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a triple and three runs scored Tuesday against the Astros.

The second double gave Andrus a new career high of 36. He also has twice as many homers (16) as he's ever hit before. If only his defense were still as strong now as it was four or five years ago... he'd deserve some MVP consideration if that were the case.

Andrus is having by far his best season at the plate. Today's homer doubled his previous career high of eight set last year.

Andrus was the only Rangers position player who didn't record a hit or a walk, but he still managed to help out fantasy owners by stealing second and third base in the second inning after reaching on a fielder's choice. It looked like he actually might have been out in his attempt to steal second, but the Mets chose not to challenge the play. Andrus has 22 steals on the season.

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 and crunched a two-run bomb in a 5-1 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Andrus has tailed off offensively in July, but he has three homers in his last seven games and 14 on the year. The 28-year-old established a new career-high with eight homers last year, but he should at least double that total this year.
Jul 29 - 12:36 AM

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored as the Rangers came back to beat the Rays 4-3 on Saturday.

Andrus hit a solo homer in the fourth inning to get the Rangers on the board, and he was in the middle of the three-run sixth inning that saw the Rangers take the lead. It's the second straight game in which the shortstop has homered among three hits, after collecting just two hits in his first 29 at-bats of the second half. Andrus is batting .291/.333/.466 with an already career-best 13 homers, 53 RBI, 58 runs scored and 20 steals to date.

Andrus went 3-for-5 on the night, including a solo homer in the first inning. He entered Friday’s action in a miserable 2-for-33 slide, so hopefully this will get him going again.
