WATCH: Nicholas Castellanos does epic bat slam after 2-run dinger


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs right fielder Nicholas Castellanos was fired up after drilling his second 2-run home run of the afternoon on Friday. For the second time on the day, Castellanos went yard off Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Chase Anderson.

Hammering a 422-foot blast out to left-center at Wrigley Field, Castellanos plated Cubs center fielder Ian Happ and increased the Cubs' lead to 5-0 in the second frame. The round-tripper came on a fastball, and it exited the field at 105 miles per hour and 28 degrees.

Castellanos was jacked up as soon as the no-doubter left his bat, as he turned to face the Cubs' dugout before slamming his bat on the ground in celebration. Castellanos has already hit 11 home runs through 27 games with the Cubs, which is the same amount of dingers that he hit through 100 games with the Detroit Tigers.
