Starlin Castro hits a double in the fifth inning

Castro gets four hits
Now the phenom is batting

When hitting lead off
The number's even better
It's .536
Maybe the Cubs have finally found a lead-off man ... 
Castro continues to amaze in his first full season in the majors, going 4-for-5 with a three-run homer Saturday night in the Cubs 8-3 victory over the Rockies.
The youngest player in the majors, Castro is hitting .536 (15-for-28) in the leadoff spot, where manager Mike Quade says he will stay for a while. Nothing seems to faze the kid, who is batting .397 for the season.  "I'm ready," Castro said. "I came into the season thinking I would do this, so it's no surprise. I thought it was going to happen, that it's coming."
