Ryan Dempster was absolutely dominant once again, and the Cubs won for just the fifth time in their last 25 games. Alfonso Soriano continues to hit the ball hard from the DH spot, and Starlin Castro had a big day at the plate.
Castro also had an interesting day in the field. On one play, he showed us everything we already think about his defensive game: taking a grounder in the hole, Castro took his eye off the ball, and booted it into the outfield. Scrambling to the ball, he grabbed it and threw a strike to the plate from shallow left in one smooth motion, nailing a runner who was trying to score from second. He makes mistakes, but he’s crazy talented. That’s Castro.
