MILWAUKEE — Continuing to thrive by way of opposite-field home runs, Chicago Cubs right fielder Nicholas Castellanos jacked a solo shot out to right-center field on Friday. The blast, which marked Castellanos' 13th long ball in a Cubs uniform, put the Cubs up 1-0 over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Castellanos took Brewers starter Zach Davies deep on a cutter in the top of the third. The round-tripper at Miller Park carried 387 feet and sported a launch angle of 30 degrees after leaving the bat at 102 miles per hour. Serving as Castellanos' 24th homer of the season, the dinger was hit with two outs.
