The Cuban guy Yulieski Gurriel lives his best moment of the season, links seven consecutive games batting hit and being explosive on the bases with three scams to his account in that period
Despite averaging 345 (29-10) during his streak, with four doubles, five runs scored and two RBIs, Dusty Baker decided to take him to the bench and in his place will play the reinforcement Trey Mancini, who already debuted the previous day in the one that went from 1-0.

The Astros are looking to avoid the sweep at home against the Red Sox and to do so they will make their two most recent additions debut as regulars, Mancini himself and Christian Vázquez, who will face his former team.
As far as the Cubans are concerned, Aledmys Díaz will enter the game, in the left field and fifth batter, and Yordan Álvarez, as designated player and third batter.

The Astros have lost three of their last four games in which they have barely made 10 runs and only three against their current rivals. This weak offense has caused Dusty to move his chips and this time the sacrificed was Yulieski Gurriel.
The man from Sancti Spiritus shows an offensive line of .246/.295/.394/.689 (AVE/OBP/SLG/OPS). He with 31 doubles, seven home runs, eight stolen bases, 29 RBIs and 37 runs scored in 96 games.
