Correa Records First MLB Hit And RBI After Challenge

Update: 8:30 am

The Astros Rookie shortstop, Carlos Correa, recorded his first MLB hit and RBI the most unconventional way, after a challenge.

In the top of the 4th, and a runner on third, Correa hit a ground ball to White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez, who scooped it up and threw to first to nab the Astros rookie.  But after further review, Correa looked to have beaten the throw.  The Astros challenged the call and Correa was rewarded with a hit and RBI.

The Astros dropped the game 3-1 and have lost their last five straight games.

Original Post: June 8

On Sunday the Houston Astros called up their 20-year old Phenom, Carlos Correa and is expected to make his major league debut on Monday against the Chicago White Sox at Minute Maid Park.

Correa has been with the organization since 2012, when he was the #1 overall pick in the June Amateur draft.

At the start of this season, the Puerto Rican native started with the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks and batted .385, with 15 doubles, seven home runs, 32 RBI and 15 stolen bases in 117 at bats.  He was then promoted to Triple-A Fresno Grizzlies and in 94 at bats, he hit .276, with 19 runs, three home runs and 11 RBI.

Now Correa gets a chance to join other top prospects who have made their debuts this season. Hope he is as successful as many of the rest before him.
