Astros Minor League Recap, 4-12

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

Organizational Sweep. Again!

The Astros organization swept their way to a few wins across the levels last night. The major league game in Arlington was of utmost importance and excitement, and could be a huge confidence boost for a team that watched the Rangers own them last year. However, quite a bit went on in three levels of the minors, with a lot going on the way of offense, especially in Oklahoma City.

Carlos Correa's slump is another thing to take notice of...or is it? Correa is 1 for his last 23 at the plate after an 0-5 night on Saturday. He's obviously in a slump, but he's maintained a 5:4 K/BB ratio over that span, so he's not getting fooled on everything and striking out a ton. His BABIP is rather low (it was sitting at .267 before Fangraphs included Saturday night's oh-fer, so it's even lower than that today), so hopefully this is just a string of a little bad luck to start the season.

AAA: Oklahoma City Redhawks 12, New Orleans Zephyrs 1

There were a ton of offensive contributors in this affair. the Redhawks recorded 17 hits, including a homer from catcher Carlos Perez and nine more extra base hits. Domingo Santana knocked three doubles, George Springer tripled and eight different players batted in runs. Jon Singleton added to a hot week at the plate knocking in four runs. Jake Buchanan started for OKC and went five innings of scoreless ball, striking out 5.
