(AP) When Houston's Marwin Gonzalez broke up Yu Darvish's perfect game with two outs in the ninth inning April 2, the first question many asked was: Who is Marwin Gonzalez?


Three weeks later, Gonzalez is showing he's no one-hit wonder. The shortstop who bats ninth entered Thursday hitting .289 in 16 games and his three homers are third on the team.


He's also been strong defensively, teaming with second baseman Jose Altuve to turn some dazzling double plays, and has been one of the few bright spots in Houston's tough start.


Manager Bo Porter says Gonzalez has been "terrific" and that he's getting better every day.
