Castro crushed his 10th homer of the season in the seventh inning Sunday during the Astros' eventual win versus the White Sox.
The two-run blast provided Houston with just enough breathing room in a one-run victory. Moreover, Castro tagged a left-hander for the second day in a row, after failing to do so in 136 previous at-bats against southpaws. His slash line versus lefties in 2013 -- .182/.234/.341 -- is not appealing in the slightest, but perhaps the brief surge will give manager Bo Porter less pause when the opponent is trotting out a lefty.
