Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa hit the first home run of his career on Tuesday night against the Chicago White Sox.

The Astros called up Correa, the No. 1 pick of the 2012 draft, on Sunday. He made his MLB debut on Monday and picked up his first career hit and RBI on an infield single. 

The 20-year-old went 2-for-4 with two RBIs against the White Sox on Tuesday in his second career game. His home run, a two-run shot, came off of Zach Duke in the ninth inning.

Chicago won the game 4–2 after David Robertson came on for the save.
