El Oso Blanco is quickly becoming a triples machine, as Tuesday's was his fourth triple of the season after registering just one through his first 213 games. It was also his second consecutive game with a triple, so don't be surprised if, as he did Monday, Gattis gets a day off soon to recover. The fleet-footed designated hitter is batting .238/.269/.448 overall.

The designated hitter, not known for his wheels, legged out his third triple of the season and fourth of his career in the seventh inning to give the Astros the lead.

Evan Gattis went 4-for-5 with three runs scored in Sunday's 13-0 demolition of the Mariners.

All four of Gattis' hits went for singles. Even with the effort, he's still hitting just .236. He doesn't rack up these kinds of multi-hit games very often, but he more than makes up for it with his power and production, as he's slugging .454 with 12 homers and 39 RBI over 229 at-bats.

The designated hitter is sixth in the AL in home runs and seventh in the league with 36 RBI. After a slow start, Gattis has proven to be what the Astros hoped they were getting when they traded for him this past winter.

The DH has been on fire lately, homering three times with four multi-hit games during his eight-game hitting streak. On the year, Gattis has gone yard 11 times while driving in 33 runs and batting .231/.260/.484.

Evan Gattis tripled, homered, knocked in three runs, and scored three runs as the Astros eked out a win in a slugfest with the Tigers on Sunday.

Gattis brought in the Astros' first two runs with a triple in the first inning and later scored on a balk. He added a solo home run in the sixth inning. The slugger's bat has heated back up as the month of May nears its end, picking his triple-slash line up to .201/.233/.435 with nine home runs and 28 RBI.
May 24 - 4:43 PM

Evan Gattis went 1-for-5 with an RBI triple in Thursday's extra-innings loss to the Tigers.

Gattis' triple off of David Price drove home the Astros' first run of the game in the seventh inning. To that point, Price had been almost untouchable (he finished the game with 12 strikeouts). The Astros would eventually claw their way back from a 5-0 deficit only to lose in the eleventh inning. Not normally the nimblest of players, the triple was just the second of Gattis' career. Gattis has a potentially explosive bat, but he's been very up-and-down this season, hitting .196/.220/.413 with 8 homers and 24 RBI.
May 21 - 5:04 PM

Evan Gattis slugged a two-run homer Wednesday in the Astros' defeat of the visiting A's.

Gattis also drew a walk in the afternoon victory over Oakland. He still has an ugly .196/.221/.406 season slash line, but that has come with eight home runs and 24 RBI in 38 games. A little more consistency would be nice.
