Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley went 2-for-4 with one run scored in the Astros 4-1 win over the Yankees in Game 3 of the ALCS. The veteran now has hits in each of the first three games of the series and is hitting .308 over his last 13 at-bats. Ever since Brantley hit a huge home run in Game 5 of the ALDS, he has looked more and more like the player that hit 22 home runs with 90 runs batted in this season. Brantley's arrow is pointing up heading into Game 4.
Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley went 2-for-3 with a single and one home run in the Astros 6-1 win over the Rays in Game 5 of the ALDS. Brantley has struggled at the plate for over a month now but snapped out of it at the right time. He singled to help set up the Astros four-run first inning and then added a solo home run in the eighth inning. If Brantley can regain his midseason form, the Astros offense will be even more dangerous in the ALCS against the Yankees.
Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley will start and hit second for the Astros in Game 4 against the Rays. Brantley is hitting only .167 in the series and his offensive production has been on a steep decline for over a month now. The veteran has been fantastic this season but hit only .179 in the month of September with only four extra-base hits spanning his final 78 regular season at-bats. Brantley will try and just get on base as the Astros try and eliminate the Rays.
