KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- The Astros moved their spring workouts to the stadium field at Osceola County Stadium, where a team managed by Adam Everett beat a team managed by Morgan Ensberg, 10-4. The hitters were batting against a pitching machine that threw nothing but curveballs.

The teams combined for five home runs -- Carlos Correa, Max Stassi, L.J. Hoes, Jonathan Meyer and Domingo Santana. Correa, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 Draft, got a cooler of liquid and ice dumped on his head after the game.

"It was cold," Correa said. "I don't think I need the cold tub anymore after today. You enjoy those kinds of moments -- especially with your teammates. It was fun."

Astros manager Bo Porter was happy with what he saw from his club following a couple of days when he voiced some displeasure about the drills on the back fields.

"Extremely happy about today, the entire day," said Porter. "The work early on in the workout, and I felt like the intrasqaud game was really good because these guys had the opportunity to compete and play the game of baseball."

Because the day was so productive, the players got their work in running the bases earlier in the morning. Strength and conditioning coach Jake Beiting told Porter no post-workout conditioning was needed.

"He said, 'Bo, that's about as good a conditioning as you can get,'" said Porter.
