Starlin Castro picks up his 500th career base hit off of A.J. Burnett.
This makes Castro the twenty-eighth player in Major League history to record 500 hits before the age of twenty three. :)
Castro plans to stay in Chicago a very long time, and can’t wait to find out what Wrigley Field will look and feel like if the Cubs become an elite team. ‘Oh my God, it’s gonna be awesome,’ he said.
I am much more comfortable this year because my English is much better and I can talk to everybody without help. Last year I was kind of lost and didn’t know where I was going. Now I have more experience at these things. I will take [teammate and fellow All-Star Bryan] LaHair with me everywhere I go.
Nyjer Morgan hits an infield pop-up. Matt Garza fields it while narrowly avoiding a collison with Starlin Castro. And then Garza and Castro share a hug.
If we’re going to lose, we’re damn well going to be adorable while doing it.
