CINCINNATI — Just one inning after he went yard on a solo shot, Chicago Cubs outfielder Nicholas Castellanos skied his second home run of the night with yet another solo dinger in the top of the fourth on Thursday. The opposite-field blast put the Cubs up 6-5 over the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Improving to 14-for-32 with the Cubs, Castellanos secured his fifth career multi-homer game and first multi-homer game with the Cubs by way of a 359-footer over the wall in right field. The tater boasted a launch angle of 27 degrees and an exit velocity of 103 miles per hour.
