At the end of the 2022 MLB season, it appeared that Carlos Correa would be moving on from the Minnesota Twins. That became increasingly likely after he agreed to a massive free-agent deal with the San Francisco Giants, but the team averted his contract after looking through his injury history. The same thing happened with the New York Mets. And suddenly, he found himself back in the Twin Cities.

As the Twins beat the Astros 6-2 in Game 2 to tie the American League Division Series at 1-1, it was Correa who came through against his former team. Correa went 3-for-4 and drove in three RBIs, as the Twins head back to Minnesota with the series tied. 

As Correa drove in two runs to increase the lead over Houston, he surpassed Derek Jeter and David Ortiz on the all-time postseason RBI leaderboard.

Correa was nearly speechless as Fox’s Tom Verducci shared that insane feat with him.

“Wow, I gotta let that sink in,” he said.

The MLB world was quick to react as Correa accomplished a historic postseason feat on Sunday night.

Correa is now tied with David Justice (63) for the most RBIs in playoff history, only trailing Manny Ramirez and Bernie Williams.
