8/12 Extra bases: Castro
Starlin Castro had multiple hits in each game of the Cubs’ four-game series vs. the Giants. He went 4-for-5 on Thursday, and had two hits in each of the other three games. It’s the third time this season he has recorded a multi-hit game in each contest of a series. Castro also did so against the Phillies May 19-20 and against the Brewers Aug. 2-4. His four hits on Thursday tied a career high, which he set Aug. 4 against Milwaukee.
