Breaking an 0-for-18 spell that dated back to his MLB debut on July 25, Astros 3B Alex Bregman singled to center field in the 3rd inning of today’s game against Detroit.

The 22-year-old’s first Major League hit came off a 93.6 mph sinker from Tigers starter Mike Pelfrey and advanced a runner to third base, earning a sportsmanlike hug from Detroit 1B Miguel Cabrera.

The game was Bregman’s sixth since being called-up from Triple-A. After batting 6th or 7th in the order in his first five games, Bregman batted second in today’s 11-0 loss to Detroit. He finished the day 1-for-5.
