WATCH CASTY (4-FOR-5) WALK-OFF WIN IT FOR THE PHILS!

By Peter Marks

Nick Castellanos went 4-for-5 with a game-winning double in a 4-3 win over the Padres.

Castellanos came to the plate in a tie game in the ninth inning and blooped in a double just beyond a sliding Fernando Tatis Jr. in right field.

It was a much-needed big game for the veteran, who was hitting .203 in 14 games in June and is now hitting just .219 overall on the season.

Castellanos is making more contact and striking out less this season, but he’s making less authoritative contact and really struggling to hit anything other than fastballs with a .134 AVG and .208 wOBA against off-speed pitches.

He’ll continue to play regularly and hit in the middle of the Phillies’ lineup, but there aren’t many signs of a full-on bounceback here.
