Former Tigers OF Nicholas Castellanos breaks up no-hitter in first game with Chicago Cubs

(Photo byST. LOUIS - Former Detroit Tigers outfielder Nicholas Castellanos was a unique type of hero in his first game with the Chicago Cubs, breaking up a no-hitter and recording the only hit of the entire game for his new team. Castellanos batted second for the Cubs on Thursday as they battled NL Central co-leader St. Louis for sole possession of first place. It was by far the most meaningful game Castellanos has played in since 2016, but he likely didn't expect to be an offensive hero with a single, a walk, a strikeout and a line out. Castellanos hit a double and a single, and struck out three times in six at-bats that game.
