Astros rookie George Springer has slowed down a bit since he went crazy last month (seven homers in the span of seven games), but he still packs plenty of punch at the plate. The latest bit of evidence? This shot against David Price of the Rays:

Yes, that was off the D-ring catwalk in Tropicana Field, which the Rays media relations department notes was the 23rd time that's happened in the history of the stadium. The last time came in 2011, when Mitch Moreland did it.

The two-run shot would end up being all the Astros needed, as they won 3-1. Springer is now hitting .247/.344/.470 with 13 homers and 38 RBI.
