Cubs | Starlin Castro benched for mental mistake Saturday

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro was benched by manager Dale Sveum after making a mental mistake during the fifth inning of the game against the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 17. With the bases loaded and one out, Castro caught a fly ball in shallow left field off the bat of 2B Matt Carpenter. He hesitated to throw home after putting his head down, allowing Jon Jay to score from third base and letting the other runners advance. INF Donnie Murphy shifted over from third base to shortstop for the sixth inning, with INF Cody Ransom coming off the bench to play the hot corner. Castro returned to the lineup Sunday, Aug. 18.
