Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with a run scored in a losing effort Friday against the Rangers.

Gattis had a triple and a double. He's now up to 10 triples on the year, which is more than speedsters like Billy Hamilton, Dee Gordon, Jose Altuve, and Ben Revere. Baseball is weird like that sometimes. Meanwhile, Gattis has yet to steal a base this season. No player has finished with 10-plus triples and no steals in a season since Jerry Lumpe in 1962.

Evan Gattis went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run as the Astros defeated the Angels on Monday.

Gattis opened the scoring in the second inning, drilling a two-run home run off of Jered Weaver. The slugger has provided plenty of power but not much else as evidenced by his .243/.281/.456 triple-slash line. He's carrying 26 home runs with 85 RBI.

Evan Gattis went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 10-6 win over the A's.

The A's led 6-3 in the fifth inning, but the Astros slowly crept their way back into the game. This allowed Gattis to do his thing. With the score 6-5 in his disadvantage, he slugged a three-run homer in the seventh inning off Fernando Rodriguez to push his club ahead for good. It was his second homer in the last four games. For the season, he's slashing .241/.280/.452 with 25 homers and 83 RBI. He also has nine triples, proving that there are still mysteries in this universe that must be unlocked.

Evan Gattis hit a two-run home run but it wasn't nearly enough as the Astros suffered a 14-3 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

Gattis, who finished 3-for-4, hit a two-run home run off of Andrew Faulkner in the eighth inning, but by then it was too little, too late. The slugger has a mediocre .240/.279/.448 triple-slash line with 24 home runs and 79 RBI on the year.

Evan Gattis hit a two-run single in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Gattis came through in a big spot Tuesday, as his two-RBI single with two outs in the fourth inning gave the Astros a short-lived lead. It was his only hit in five at-bats. The designated hitter is already having a career year in a number of offensive categories with a few weeks left to play -- despite a subpar .236/.275/.439 line, he has 23 homers, 77 RBI and 59 runs scored, all career bests. Gattis will hope to continue to improve on those numbers over the season's final few weeks.

Evan Gattis is not in the Astros starting lineup on Friday.

For the year, the 29-year-old slugger is slashing .238/.278/.448 with the 23 homers, plus 75 RBI. He's now set a new personal-best for long balls in a season.

Evan Gattis slugged two solo homers in the Astros' 6-2 victory over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Gattis went deep off Michael Pineda in the top of the second inning and off Adam Warren in the top of the eighth. He also homered Tuesday as part of a four-RBI game. "El Oso Blanco" is batting .243/.276/.464 with a career-high 22 home runs and 69 RBI in 121 games this season for the American League West-leading Astros.

Evan Gattis clubbed a solo homer Friday against the Dodgers.

Gattis is now up to 19 home runs on the season. 13 of them have come at home, which shouldn't be much of a surprise given how friendly Minute Maid Park is to right-handed batters. The 29-year-old is batting .237/.269/.445 on the year.
Aug 21 - 11:09 PM

Evan Gattis had an RBI infield single and a solo home run, but the Astros dropped Monday's contest to the Rays.

Gattis chewed into the Rays' 4-0 lead, plating a run on an infield single in the second, then clubbing an Erasmo Ramirez pitch to the opposite field in the fourth for a solo homer. They would be the only two runs the Astros would score. Gattis hasn't been the offensive force the Astros expected when they traded for him with the Braves. He's hitting a meager .236/.269/.442 with 18 home runs and 62 RBI, serving mostly as the team's DH.
Aug 17 - 11:44 PM

Evan Gattis went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Coming into the season, Gattis had just one triple in 723 at-bats. This year? Six in 358 at-bats. Baseball is a strange, strange sport. The rocket man is hitting .246/.274/.450 with 16 homers and 57 RBI on the season.

Evan Gattis went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run scored as the Astros topped the Rangers 3-2 to begin the second half of the season.

Jul 17 - 11:36 PM
