Houston (SPORTSRADIO 610) - The Astros lineup put together a 13 hit parade against the Mariners Wednesday night at Minute Maid Park. Thanks to five hits in a four-run seventh inning, the home team would go on to win by a final score of 7-5. Unfortunately, Carlos Correa left the game after striking out swinging in the seventh inning with discomfort in his side. 

"Carlos came out with some right side soreness. He felt something during his at-bat, the last at-bat where he struck out. He took a couple swings, had a little discomfort. Pretty easy decision to take him out. We'll get him re-evaluated," Astros Manager A.J. Hinch said.

"It didn't feel good, so they took me out of the game," Correa said. "Obviously you're concerned when you're taken out of the game with an injury, but we'll see what the doctor says and hopefully it's nothing bad."

On the mound, Lance McCullers Jr. made a strong effort into the seventh inning but could not record an out after giving up a home run and a walk. He finished allowing 7 hits and 4 runs, but only 3 were earned runs. Chris Devenski came in relief and allowed the runner to advanced to third on a throwing error during a pickoff attempt, and then score on a single.

Josh Reddick returned from his stint on the Disabled List due to a leg infection and went 1-for-4. George Springer, Alex Bregman and Evan Gattis all had two hits on the night. Tony Kemp had three hits and raised his average from .261 to .300.
