Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos belts fourth home run Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

After his four-RBI game on Wednesday, Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos had another big day against the Astros on Thursday. Castellanos went 1 for 4 with a two-out, two-run home run in the bottom of the fourth to give the Tigers an early 2-0 lead. It was his fourth bomb of the season.

The young third baseman is hitting the ball well lately, hitting safely in eight of his last 10 games.

Tigers' Castellanos on go-ahead hit: 'I've been waiting for that all season'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told reporters he started seeing a "noticeable difference" in Nick Castellanos approach at the plate during batting practice prior to Wednesday's game against Milwaukee. Castellanos backed that up with a pivotal bases-clearing triple in the eighth inning to lead his club to a 5-2 victory, snapping a three-game losing streak

"I've been waiting for that all season," Castellanos said, per MLive.com. "I needed it. The team needed it. The organization, the fans needed it. Everybody needed it. And I'm just blessed that I was able to deliver it."

Castellanos is hitting .278 (15 for 54) with a double, two triples, a home run and nine RBI over his last 14 games, raising his batting average from .216 to .240 on the season.

"Lately, I've been trying to get really mechanical, trying to have the perfect swing," Castellanos said. "You see the way J.D. (Martinez) swings and you see the way Miguel (Cabrera) swings and you see how good of hitters they are, obviously you want to hit like them, because it's no secret why they have success.

"But Newie and Wally made a good point. They said, 'Hey, they're great at what they do. You're great the way you do it. You don't have to try to adjust to the way they do to have success. You can have success the way you hit.' So that's what I did. All through coming up, I've always been kind of tall, free and easy, and I went back to that. To be honest, I felt pretty comfortable."

Tigers 3B Nick Castellanos launches third home run of the season
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos snapped a 16-game homerless drought, as he went 2 for 3 with a solo home run on Thursday. Castellanos' third home run of the season came in the bottom of the fifth inning, and essentially served as the knockout blow for Twins starter Mike Pelfrey.

The 23-year-old is now batting a disappointing .240 on the year with just 13 RBI after Thursday's performance.
