Astros' Carlos Correa scores from second on a wild pitch

Just when you thought Correa was missing the speed tool, there it is.

Seattle Mariners James Paxton had three wild pitches in Friday's game against the Houston Astros. The most entertaining of the three came in the fifth inning. On the first pitch to Carlos Gomez, Paxton threw a 91-MPH changeup in the dirt that ricocheted away from the catcher, Chris Iannetta.

The ball got far enough away without hesitation, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa took third base at full speed and aggressively rounded the base towards home.

Iannetta attempted to retrieve the ball but it had skipped over to Astros dugout up the third base line. Correa not breaking stride, scored easily.

The run put the Astros up 5-0 in the fifth inning and Houston would go on to win 7-3.

Correa also had a nice snag at second base in the seventh inning to rob Robinson Cano of a base hit up the middle.

Correa was all over the place on Friday helping the Astros.
