Correa had been in a bit of a mini-funk at the plate before slamming four hits and scoring three runs over his last three games. His slash line in the year remains an excellent .278/.347/.510.
Escobar, who entered the game with five homers on the season, hit his first in the sixth inning, a 418-foot shot to right. He followed that up with another home run to right in the eighth to provide a key insurance run.
This will be Correa's second day off since being promoted to the Major Leagues back in early June. The hot-hitting rookie has cooled down a bit of late, as he is batting .231 with one home run and six RBI over his last 10 games.
Marwin Gonzalez will get the start at shortstop on Wednesday.
Hardy has been plagued by the groin ailment for a while. He is batting .157 (11-for-70) in August.
Over his last 11 games, Hardy was 3 of 39 and had to go through pregame drills before being allowed to play last weekend. Overall, he's hitting just .222 in 93 games.
Hardy, who entered Saturday hitting 3 of 39 in his last 11 games, hurt his groin on Friday and had to go through pregame drills before being allowed to play this weekend.
"I think it's a bit of an understatement I think to say it's been a grind," Hardy said before testing his groin prior to batting practice Saturday. "I'm just trying to get through it, get my body right, get my swing right, do anything I can."
Brock Holt will slide over to shortstop for Wednesday's matchup with the Indians.
Gonzalez hit his first career walk-off homer and his eighth go-ahead shot.
Gonzalez went 3 for 4 with a double and two RBI.
