    Harold Castro keeps making winning plays for Detroit Tigers

    Detroit — You watch Harold Castro play on a daily basis, whether it’s at shortstop or second base, whether it’s coming off the bench to deliver a clutch hit or saving the bullpen by pitching an occasional scoreless inning, all he seems to do is make positive plays and contribute.

    And yet, if all saw were his statistics, you’d wonder how he was still on the team.

    The Tigers' Harold Castro is hitting .270 with only six of of his 65 hits this season going for extra bases.

    “Watch and use your eyes,” manager AJ Hinch said before the Tigers played the Twins on Monday. “The game will tell you if he makes plays.”

    He makes a boatload of plays.

    He saved a run with a deft, barehanded grab and leaping throw to first to complete a double-play pivot on Sunday. He delivered the Tigers only run of the game with a clutch two-out, two-out single. He sent the game into extra innings in St. Louis with a pinch-hit single in the ninth inning last Wednesday. He delivered a pinch-hit, go-ahead run in the 10th inning against the Blue Jays at Comerica Park the week before that.
