Apr 16, 2014, 9:39 PM EDT

Astros outfield prospect George Springer grounded out sharply to shortstop in his first major league at-bat on Wednesday night. In his second trip to the plate, he made it to first base

Springer, a .302/.397/.562 career hitter in the minors with elite-level power and speed, is batting second for the Astros in his major league debut. He scored after that hit on a two-run homer by Jason Castro.

    Heywood: You really knocked the crap out of that one.
    Willie Mays Hayes: Oh, I plan to get at least a double out of this.

      I bought a hundred of these, 1 for every base I’m gonna steal.

    Good times ahead… Let’s see Singleton now!
