CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is back in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Houston Astros in Houston, Texas, after suffering a concussion when sliding head first into third base on June 8th. 

Hamilton missed last week before being reinstated from the 7-day disabled list and the Reds elected to option Class AAA Louisville OF Steve Selsky in response. 

Just before Hamilton went on the disabled list he was batting .429/.459/.629 and accumulated eight steals over his last ten games. He is scheduled to bat seventh in the lineup with Lance McCullers on the mound for Houston and first pitch set for 8:10 p.m.
