NICK CASTELLANOS NEWS

Game 2015.42: Astros at Tigers

Nick Castellanos had his biggest hit of the season last night, a slicing line drive with the bases juiced in the 8th inning. Castellanos was credited with a triple and showed a ton of emotion standing on third, rightfully so. It was a huge moment for a team that sorely needed a big hit. (Let’s be clear, the RF took an awful angle, but it would have driven in at least 2 in any event...

Watch: Tigers' Castellanos comes through in the clutch with big triple

Nick Castellanos provided the spark the Tigers offense was looking for Wednesday night. His bases-clearing triple in the eighth pumped some life back into the deflated Tigers, who went on to beat the Brewers 5-2 to avoid a series sweep. With the bases loaded and two outs, Castellanos came up with the hit of the night -- a three-run triple to break a 2-2 tie. "That's a good at-bat...

Late triple dooms Brewers in 5-2 loss to Tigers

DETROIT -- Nick Castellanos arrived at third base, clapped his hands joyously and bent over to slap the dirt. Finally, the Detroit Tigers had broken through for a big inning. "I've been waiting for that all season," Castellanos said. "I needed it, the team needed it, the organization, the fans needed it. Everybody needed it." Castellanos hit a bases-loaded triple with two out in...

Castellanos' 3-run triple lifts Tigers over Brewers 5-2

DETROIT (AP) Nick Castellanos hit a bases-loaded triple with two out in the eighth inning to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 5-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night. The Tigers avoided a sweep in the three-game series thanks to a rally in their final at-bat.

The Tigers Leadoff: Down to Earth Tigers look to avoid Windy City sweep

Looking to avoid total embarrassment and a sweep the Tigers (17-11) take on the Chicago White Sox (10-14) in the finale of their three game series from the South Side of the Chicago. Having dropped the first two games of the series, including a heart breaker last night that saw Detroit blow a late 3-run lead thanks in part to Brad Ausmus, Nick Castellanos and Joba Chamberlain the...

Dave Dombrowski, Brad Ausmus Keep Setting Tigers’ Bullpen up to Fail

The Tigers led by three, with two outs in the bottom of the eighth, when things unraveled Wednesday night. Joba Chamberlain gave up a single, then another (a line shot Nick Castellanos said he should have caught), followed by a game-tying home run. Inexplicably, Chamberlain stayed out for three more batters. All three singled, driving home the go-ahead run in what became a 7-6 Detroit...

Game 2015.15: Yankees at Tigers

As good as Monday’s game was, the Tigers dribbled through Tuesday’s game like an egregiously under-inflated basketball.  It’s not that the game wasn’t close; The Lobster, despite a shaky start, got through 6 innings with only one run, and the Tigers went into the 7th down only 1-0. In fact Detroit had the winning run at the plate in the bottom of the 9th. But somehow this...

Ventura’s No-Challenge Is Inexcusable

Robin Ventura was one of my favorite White Sox players growing up. When the Sox tagged him to become the manager I was both surprised but intrigued by the possibility. As such, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt at first. I was even willing to give him a pass for the last two years because he didn’t have much to work with. But as we enter year four of the Ventura...

Tigers beat White Sox 2-1 for big league-best 9-1 start

Game 2015.8: Tigers at Pirates

Well all good streaks must come to an end, although this apparently does not apply to the Kansas City Royals, which means the 6 – 1 Tigers are now in 2nd place.

Reports of the Tigers’ demise were greatly exaggerated

Maybe it was their failure in the postseason against Baltimore last October (they lost seven of their last nine play off games). Maybe it was worries about their injuries and old age. Maybe it was boredom, refusing to pick the same team as always to win it all, but for some reason the sports writers of American (including those for this site) had essentially pronounced the Detroit...

Castellanos working to improve for sophomore season

DETROIT -- As a rookie, Nick Castellanos acquitted himself pretty well offensively. Defensively was another matter. According to fangraphs.com, Castellanos had -30 defensive runs saved in 2014, the worst by any player at any position. To that end, the Tigers are having Castellanos visit defensive coordinator Matt Martin in Lubbock, Tex., before spring training starts for extra instruction...

Buck Showalter, evil genius, predicted how Game 3 would end

Orioles manager Buck Showalter’s decision to have Zach Britton walk Nick Castellanos, the winning run, in the ninth inning yesterday to bring up Andrew Romine (replaced by pinch hitter Hernan Perez) was a ballsy one, but one that paid off in spades for Baltimore. When Showalter came to the mound to talk to Britton before the intentional walk, he accurately predicted the exact turn...
