Springer has 13 leadoff homers in his career, which ties him with Terry Puhl for the second place on the Astros’ all-time list. Hall of Famer Craig Biggio has the club record with 53 career leadoff home runs, so Springer has some work to do if he wants to catch Biggio.

Springer hit eight leadoff home runs last year, which tied a single-season record set by Biggio in 2001. Tuesday’s leadoff homer means Springer has driven in nine of the Astros’ first 22 runs this season.
