Look out baseball world. Carlos Correa is wearing his pants low now, and he’s starting to pull the baseball again. He means business. You love Correa’s ability to use the entire field of course, but last season he was at his best when he was turning on balls and being aggressive early in the count with pitches down the middle.
He’s starting to do that this year. In the Astros 10-7 win over the Angels at Minute Maid Park tonight he doubled to the gap (I haven’t seen him hit a ball to this spot of a park this season until tonight) and then homered off the train tracks at the park. See for yourself.
This was Correa’s 10th home run of the season, and let us hope that he has about 15 more left in him. When he gets hot, it’s going to be with a fury.
The Astros are four games out in the Wildcard race in the American League and can still make a go of things if they play steady baseball from now until October.
