Today should be officially proclaimed Carlos Correa Day. He’s baaaaack. After two months on IL we finally have the Core Four together again in the same lineup.
Of course, it would have to be in a National League ball park, so there will be no Godzilla Alvarez presence. Let’s see how well pitchers handle a lineup of Springer, Altuve, Bregman, Brantley, Correa, Gurriel, Reddick, Chirinos and Alvarez. (That’s the lineup tonight, except for the pitcher, Jose Urquidy, who is batting ninth). Maybe we’ll see it one day in this series.
Urquidy, (1-0, 5.54 ERA) is opposed by Jack Flaherty, (4-6, 4.24 ERA)
Here is tonight’s Astros lineup and media access information.
