Jeff Keppinger flourishing as No. 3 hitter
Look, I have, shall we say, a few doubts that Keppinger can keep producing lofty numbers in the Astros' prime hitting slot at this level, but enjoy it while it lasts, right? Keppinger leads all big leaguers with a minimum 25 at-bats in the No. 3 spot with his .441 batting average -- Buster Posey, Michael Cuddyer and Corey Hart are next -- and this past weekend certainly helped. Keppinger homered Saturday and Sunday, doubled twice, knocked in four runs and scored four times.
