Correa on the season is batting .321 to go with 20 home runs and 66 RBI’s.
With Morton through five innings, the bullpen took over and was able to keep the Twins off the scoreboard.
“These guy’s here I’m sure are going to support us, and I’m sure we are going to support them,” Chris Paul said about wearing the Astros jersey before his pitch.
Over the past five years, the Rockets have been in on some of the biggest free agents in the game and one of the biggest reasons was because Harden is on the team.
No Astros made the final vote, but through injuries and players pulling out the game there is still a chance the best team in baseball can add an another all-star or two.
The Astros shortstop on the game would drive in four of the team’s six runs.
“With James Harden in prime and Chris Paul in his prime, this gives us a real shot to chase the juggernaut team’s that are out there,” general manager Daryl Morey said.
“I see a more confident pitcher than I saw in the beginning of the season, his pace has picked up a little bit, his execution has picked up a little bit and his quality has picked up a little bit,” A.J. Hinch said.
Brian McCann would get Fiers off the hook with a one-out solo home run in the bottom of the seventh and the Astros would come close to pushing another run across the plate.
Musgrove would leave the game on the hook for the loss after back to back triples in the second inning put the Astros down 2-0.
