Hit-hitting Twins meet hotter-hitting Astros

The Houston Astros lead the major leagues in hitting at .280, so they haven't had to rely on Tyler White's bat to keep their offense going. Still, his production would be a welcome addition.

In the Astros' 10-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins Tuesday at Minute Maid Park, White continued to show he is emerging from a slump. He finished 2-for-2 with a walk and two runs scored, extending his streak of reaching base safely to seven consecutive plate appearances. It marked his second consecutive multi-hit game, with White recording as many hits over the first two games of the series with the Twins as he did over the previous eight games combined, a stretch that included White slashing .167/.310/.208 with one extra-base hit.

When the Astros face the Twins in the rubber game Wednesday, White should get another shot to showcase that he has found his swing and to punch up an already potent Houston lineup.
