Marwin Gonzalez started at shortstop for the Astros for the second consecutive game Wednesday, but manager A.J. Hinch said prior to the game that Alex Bregman would play shortstop this weekend in Baltimore. Colin Moran, who was called up Tuesday, will see time at third when Bregman and Gonzalez are playing other spots.
