Gurriel gives Astros flexibility in series with A's

HOUSTON -- One night after his fifth multi-hit performance in his last seven starts, Yuli Gurriel found himself elevated in the lineup.

Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch made a point to note that Gurriel wasn't batting sixth Saturday night because of his torrid hitting. He made the change in the middle game of a three-game set with the Oakland Athletics that concludes Sunday because Gurriel's bat fit that slot in this lineup.

Saturday night marked the sixth time this season that Gurriel batted sixth, his highest spot in the order in 2017. He has mostly hit sixth, seventh or eighth, batting ninth just once.
