Ty Wigginton has really been on fire the last two months as the Astros really are benefitting from his hot bat. In July and August, Wigginton is 43 for 126 (.341 avg) with 23 runs scored, 11 homers and 30 RBIs. With Carlos Lee out for the season it was very important for someone to step up and Wigginton has been that guy for them. Wigginton’s overall season numbers now look pretty good but they didn’t not too long ago. Wigginton has played in 86 games this season for the Astros and he is 88 for 292 (.301 avg, .914 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 16 homers and 43 RBIs.
