Starlin Castro homers in 10th, lifts Miami over Phillies 3-1

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Starlin Castro nearly knocked himself out of the game before he knocked one out of the park.

Castro hit a two-run homer with two outs in the 10th inning after fouling a pitch off his foot, lifting the Miami Marlins to a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday night.

“I just wanted an opportunity that inning,” Castro said. “That guy (Hector Neris) is really good. I kept a good approach, looked for a fastball I can drive.”

So, when does Starlin Castro become a Yankee?

Starlin Castro among few veterans on young Marlins

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Starlin Castro remains a veteran on a Miami Marlins’ team that has gone with youth.

“I don’t try to put it in my mind because that’s one thing I can’t control,” Castro said. “The thing that I can control is being here every day and doing my job.”

Acquired in the December 2017 trade that sent Giancarlo Stanton, Castro hit .278 with 12 homers and 54 RBIs last season.

Strange- given that he had one of the best years of his career last year, you’d think they would have traded him for some magic beans by now….
