Thankfully for the Cubs, they won two of those three, each time when Starlin Castro ripped a solid single. Saturday night, it was this one. Last night, it looked like this:

For the record, that was a pitch on the outside edge of the plate that Castro tried to pull … and did. Very hard. Into the gap.
