CINCINNATI — Nicholas Castellanos should have known better than to try and steal on Willson Contreras.

The former Chicago Cubs and current Cincinnati Reds outfielder attempted to steal second base with Contreras behind the plate on Wednesday, and he paid the price. Castellanos attempted the steal in the bottom of the second and the score tied 0-0 at Great American Ball Park.

With the shift on, third baseman Kris Bryant caught Contreras' throw at second base and tagged Castellanos well out in front of the bag. Contreras could not help but smile after his old teammate was made to look foolish by attempting to steal on him.
