Astros third baseman Matt Dominquez has played an instrumental role in the ballclub's current five-game winning streak, thanks in part to his recent power surge and consistent, busy play in the field.
Dominquez drove in two runs in Houston's 5-4 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Sunday afternoon, giving him 29 on the season.
The former 12th overall pick of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft entered Sunday's game with eight homers over his previous 19 games -- ranking fourth in the big leagues during this timeframe.
He continues to get back on track in the power column after being homerless in his first 33 games of this season.
Furthermore, Dominguez has tallied 15 assists and two put outs while receiving 18 total chances over the last four games at third base.
He ranks second among major league third baseman with 164 total chances and with 125 assists.
His .970 fielding percentage ranks fourth in the American League.
Houston will look to complete a three-game sweep of the Angels on Monday night when Erik Bedard (0-2, 5.32 ERA) gets the starting nod against right-hander Joe Blanton (1-8, 5.94 ERA).
