Justin Verlander leads Astros into tilt vs. Rangers

The acquisition of Trey Mancini last week was executed in part to help the Houston Astros offset the loss of veteran left fielder Michael Brantley, who missed his 39th game since landing on the injured list on June 27.

But a different veteran capable of playing multiple positions has also helped the Astros fill that void. Aledmys Diaz produced a seismic fourth-inning grand slam to help Houston rally for a 7-5 victory over the visiting Texas Rangers in the opener of a three-game series on Tuesday.

Diaz has made 59 starts at six different positions this season and was in left field for the 15th game on Tuesday. He entered the series with the Rangers slashing .293/.359/.557 with six home runs and 13 RBIs since Brantley landed on the IL, a span of 30 games and 27 starts.
