Alex Bregman's shaving habits garnered attention when he shaved his mustache between at-bats in Sunday's 11–3 win over the Royals.
The third baseman entered the game on a 1–for–9 run so perhaps it was a method of changing face and changing luck.
Bregman said he "just shaved it," according to ABC13.
Astros manager A.J. Hinch said he didn't notice the new look.
Starting pitcher Gerrit Cole didn't notice either but said he was a fan of the mustache.
"I don't pay attention to Alex's shaving habits during the middle of the game," Cole said, according to the Houston Chronicle. "But I did like the mustache. It played. It was Jeff Kent-esque ... Personally, I'm a fan of the 'stache. But I guess it's been sent down, it's been DFA'ed, and we'll wait until it comes back."
