Josh Hamilton went 3-for-5 with a double, one RBI and a run scored on Sunday against the Mariners.
Although Hamilton is sitting on just five home runs through his first 191 at-bats, Sunday's double was his fifth over his last seven games as he continues to make good contact even if it doesn't always show up in the box score. It is alarming that he is currently sitting on a career-worst 38.2 AB/HR, but it is only a matter of time before his long doubles turn into home runs. He is currently slashing .293/.372/.440, which would be his best season since leaving the Rangers if he was able to keep up that pace. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
