HOUSTON — Here’s what Carlos Correa had to say about his worst performance in August, when he suffered plantar fasciitis pain and hit a record double-game grounder en route to some of the worst season-long numbers of his career. :

“Hopefully, we’ll make the playoffs and you can go there and it will all be worth it.”

It’s worth it for twins, right.

One of the greatest October performers of all time, Correa shook off his forgettable regular season and became a Titan again in the postseason, tying David Justice for third in American League/National League history in postseason RBIs. A double and a two-run single led the Astros to a 6-2 win in a pivotal Game 2 of the AL Division Series Sunday night at Minute Maid Park.

That made it 63 postseason RBIs for Correa, who now trails only Bernie Williams (80) and Manny Ramirez (78) on the leaderboard.

“That’s the reason we’re doing this,” Twins manager Rocco Baltelli said in an in-game interview on FS1. “The light didn’t find Correa, and he’s the light for our team in a lot of ways. He didn’t hit the 4-hole, but when I looked up we faced a left and it was all clear. Good — he loves it, so I gave it to him.”

After a lackluster performance in Minnesota’s Game 1 loss, the Twins made an emphatic statement that yes, they can hang with — and dominate — anyone, including the defending World Series champions, on any given day in these playoffs.

They have a superstar shortstop. They paid him $200 million for these moments.

“He gets you into the attack,” Lopez said of Correa. “He gets you into the game. A guy needs to be in the game to keep everyone else that way. So Carlos Correa is great as a leader, a player and a teammate.”

Correa’s two-out, first-inning RBI double off Astros starter Framper Valdez gave the Twins their first lead of the series after trailing from start to finish in the first. With a chance to add to Minnesota’s lead in the top of the fifth, Correa stepped up once again with a two-run, bases-loaded single that knocked Valdez out of the game.

“He’s always been a great player, but when it matters most, he can really take his focus and channel it and focus and play well over and over again,” Baldelli said of Correa. “It’s not by accident. It’s definitely not the lottery here. He’ll hit right at the right time.”

The timing of Correa’s big hits couldn’t have been more significant for the duo. While the loser of Game 1 of a division series in the current 2-2-1 format only wins the series 28% of the time, when such series are tied after two games, the club goes home for Game 3. Also 4 series won 28 times (67%) out of 42 times.

All told, Correa went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a single, a walk and three RBIs, making him 8-for-15 in the Twins’ first four games of the 2023 postseason.

The play came in Game 1 of the Wild Card Series, in which he backed up a soft grounder to the Blue Jays in no-man’s land and made an off-balance, all-or-nothing throw to catcher Bo Pichette. tray He had a game-changing pickoff at second base in Game 2 of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Jose Abreu’s DK was there to stun the veteran when he tried to go to second on a wild pitch in Game 1 of the ALDS. .

Now, all this with the bat in his hands.

“It’s been a lifetime’s work watching him get on the field to do these things,” Baldelli said. “We’re not surprised.”

While eating dinner and breakfast in Houston before Game 1, Correa said Astros fans came up to him and his family — to wish him luck. They gave him a big cheer as he was announced in the Twins’ starting lineup before Game 1.

As these two games progressed in Houston, Korea’s excitement gradually waned. Then, the boos started to mingle with the cheers. By the end of Game 2, he was greeted with a standing ovation every time.

It took a while for Houston fans to remember that October Korea was inevitable.

Except now, it’s at their expense.
