HOUSTON — With a 435-foot dart off the batter’s eye in center field in the sixth inning, Carlos Correa had blasted his second home run in Thursday’s 6-1 win vs. the A’s at Minute Maid Park for his first multi-homer game this season.

According to Statcast™, his second home run was his fourth longest this season, and at 106.7 mph, it was his third-hardest-hit long ball. Adding to a two-run 391-footer, per Statcast™, in the fourth inning, Correa notched his fourth career multi-homer game. His last came on April 6, 2016.
