Tasked with facing White Sox ace Chris Sale in his major league debut tonight, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa popped out to third base in his first at-bat in the second inning, but he beat out an infield single in the fourth inning for his first major league hit and RBI. Correa was originally ruled out, but the call was overturned after a replay challenge. Check it out below:
Not the most exciting way to get your first hit, but there you go. By the way, that single from Correa snapped Sale’s personal scoreless streak at 22 2/3 innings.
Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.
Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
