Matt Dominguez was the Astros entire offense in Friday's loss to the Rangers, going 2-for-4 with a pair of singles.

Those two singles, including one to break up Yu Darvish's perfect game in the sixth inning, were the only hits that the Astros would muster in 12 innings against Rangers pitching. Even with the two knocks, Dominguez is hitting a meager .171/.250/.400 on the season.

Dominguez homered off of David Phelps in the seventh inning, extending the Astros' lead to 3-1. The third baseman hit 21 home runs last season, but was otherwise unimpressive, finishing with a .241/.286/.403 slash line in 589 trips to the plate.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports, the Astros are closing in on a five-year contract extension with 24-year-old third baseman Matt Dominguez.

Passan says the deal will carry around $17 million in guaranteed money and also includes two club options worth between $8-10 million apiece. Dominguez is a highly-rated defender at third base and tallied 21 home runs and 77 RBI in 152 games last year, but he owns an underwhelming .248 career batting average and .700 career OPS. It's a somewhat risky move for a low-payroll club like Houston.

Matt Dominguez blasted a grand slam in Friday's 9-7 win over the Angels.

Trevor Crowe put the Astros ahead with an RBI single in the fifth inning, but Dominguez's blast off Cory Rasmus proved to be the difference in the ballgame. The 24-year-old is hitting just .243 with a .285 on-base percentage this season, but his 20 homers and 74 RBI have been quite useful in deeper fantasy formats.

"They gave me some medicine and I feel a lot better," Dominguez said. "I didn't really know what it was. I had never had one before. I got very light-headed and dizzy for no reason. When I looked around I had a lot of pressure in my head." Dominguez is hoping to play on Friday.
