WATCH: Houston Astros Carlos Correa scores on a play that the Yankees make look like Little League

  • David Whitlock

Carlos Correa has impressed people inside of baseball and fans alike during his three week debut in the majors.  He’s pulled long home runs, he’s gone opposite field over the wall, he’s batting over .300 and played spectacular defense.  He also has speed, and that was on display on Sunday in a bizarre sequence that ended up with Correa scoring on his own double.  In a play that looked more like Little League, Correa parlayed a misplay in the outfield into a game-tying double (with two base error).  Watch as the Yankees outfielders Garrett Jones and Brett Gardner resemble the Keystone Cops on this ball in the left field power alley (via MLB.com)

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.  But if you’re hustling all the way, you get rewarded. Correa later doubled and scored the go ahead run in what ended up being a 3-1 Astros win.  The kid really makes things happen out there!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
