Comment on this story
HOUSTON -- Carlos Correa, the top overall pick in last June's draft, went 3-for-4 with a sacrifice fly in the Houston Astros' 6-3 exhibition win over the Chicago Cubs at Minute Maid Park on Saturday.
Correa is expected to be on the Quad Cities River Bandits roster when it is released in the coming days.
"This is what you work for every single day of your life, and I felt prepared for the opportunity," Correa said to The Associated Press. "It's amazing playing with these players and our new manager Bo Porter. It was really exciting."
Correa had singles in the third, seventh and eighth innings. His sacrifice fly came in the fifth.
