Jose Castillo Injured

[UPDATE, 3:48 p.m.] Castillo has a strained left shoulder, the team said. He will be reevaluated tomorrow.


Here in the bottom of the seventh, Nats third baseman Jose Castillo was injured while diving for a sharp ground ball. (This happened in the same frame where the Mets scored two runs, to pull within 6-5.) Castillo remained down on the ground for several minutes, and was attended to by trainer Lee Kuntz. He held his left shoulder tight against his body as he left the field. Kory Casto entered the game as a replacement.

I'll update you on Castillo's injury when we have details.

So that's why the 7th inning is taking so much time to load. Sounds like a shoulder separation; that would bite on a couple of levels for the Nationals. Hope for the best, however.

Hanrahan is getting smoked by Team Canada in the WBC. He came on in the sixth, walked (of course) the first batter and gave up two very hard hit drives as the Great White North has rallied to within a run to make the score 4-3.

Oops...forgot about Hanrahan's WP allowing the third run to score.

Dunn made some pretty good plays in RF to limit Canada to one run in the top of the sixth.

Padilla singles to lead off the 8th, and scores on a single from Molina; Now 7-5 Nationals, entering the bottom of the 8th.

Dunn hits opposite field HR in bottom of sixth, making lead 5-3 USA. Also had a great take out slide on Pete Orr earlier preventing a Canadian DP.

Hanny looked like he came out of a steamroom to pitch. He's perspring profusely. Just a case of nerves I suppose. No command at all thus far.

Dunn just hit a home run to the left of dead center in sky dome. must have been 390'+.

Hanrahan got roughed up a bit last inning, but got Orr on a ground out to Youk!

Is Youk! a distant relative of Youppi!?

Hanrahan the Irishman with an early start to the Paddy's Day wildness. Dunn the other Irishman bails him out by going yard. A precursor tobtje season, maybe?

For the Nationals - 7-5, into the bottom of the ninth; Colome on the mound.

Pleas sign Ohmann, please!

That's a precursor TO THE season. Damn iphone...

Posted by: nunof1 | March 7, 2009 4:03 PM | Report abuse

Well, it seems they have beaten the Mets. Way to go, guys. Way to go, Adam Dunn.


Posted by: kevincostello | March 7, 2009 4:04 PM | Report abuse

Woo-Hoo! - Colome' posts another 1-2-3 inning for his 3rd save, and the Nats' win 7-5 over the NYM. Bang-Zoom, and all that...

Dunn did itat the plate and in the field and now he's out of the game for late-inning defense. A precursor to what's going to happen in the late innings in the regular season, perhaps?

Nice ST win, though Bernadina came back to earth a bit....he's allowed.

Posted by: cokedispatch | March 7, 2009 4:34 PM | Report abuse

leetee - yes, a precursor to the regular season if Dunn is in the OF. The question is, will Kearns go into LF or will Dukes shift from RF to LF.

By the way, if you think Kearns is untradeable, Bobby Crosby at $5m is demanding a trade, too.

Was watching the WBC. Git R Dunn(!!!) had a very nice game. Hanrahan was scary, as noted above. Orr, eh. Was quite an exciting game to watch.

Funny to come here after the fact and read the intermingled ST and WBC posts. Glad to see that the Nats won, too.

I thought that Dunn was pretty funny in the dugout after he was removed for a defensive replacement (feeling for his pulse and using his cap like an oxygen mask). Maybe he should have checked Larry Jones and David Wright for pulses as well (hey-oh!).

I like the Team USA jerseys (way better than the Nats stars and stripes jerseys, IMO) but what's up with that logo on the caps?

BTW, Dunn stayed in the game so he was likely okay, BinM. Besides, the cage match was your idea... ;-)

That is most likely dependent on where the last out was in the lineup - example: If Dunn was the last out in the 6th or 7th, look for a defensive substitute; Otherwise, pay your money & take your chances.

No not Casto! What is it going to take for the Nationals to realize they are wasting their money on Casto!
