Lee’s 6 Hits Key Space Cowboys’ Sonic Boom

Joe Trezza  @JoeTrezz -To remember a day like he had at the plate on Sunday, Korey Lee  , Escondido alum, said he needs to think back “probably to Little League or high school, or something like that.” When they happen at this level, they’re hard to forget. (VIDEO)

“Just from a hitting standpoint, (today) was probably the best,” said Lee, the Astros’ No. 5 prospect per MLB Pipeline. “I felt pretty comfortable.”

He’s probably not the only member of Triple-A Sugar Land to feel that way after the club’s 24-8 rout of Albuquerque. The ball was really flying in the high elevation as Lee collected six of the Space Cowboys’ 30 — yes, 30 — hits to lead the Space Cowboys to one of the most lopsided victories of the 2023 Minor League season to date. Lee collected hits in each of his first five at-bats — including two as the Space Cowboys batted around in the third inning — and after striking out in his sixth, laced an RBI double to the center field wall in the ninth to achieve the first six-hit day in Sugar Land history.

He is the second Minor Leaguer with a six-hit game this season, along with Buffalo’s LJ Talley on April 30.

“You don’t need to force anything in situations like that,” Lee said. “I was thinking the same thing all day today: just trying to be athletic, trying to be myself. Good things happen when you trust your plan, and trust what you’ve been doing in the background of things.”

The combination of the hitter-friendly environment at Isotopes Park and Albuquerque’s taxed pitching staff resulted in a feeding frenzy for several top Astros prospects. No. 6 prospect Pedro León homered twice and drove in five, while Bligh Madris and Grae Kessinger each enjoyed two-homer games as well. No. 7 prospect Justin Dirden also went deep as part of a three-hit day, his fourth straight game with a homer.
