Nick Castellanos Taunts Astros After Big Phillies Win (Video)

Nick Castellanos emerged as one of two big heroes on Friday night when the Philadelphia Phillies came from behind to win Game 1 of the World Series.

With the game tied at 5-5 at the bottom of the ninth inning and the Houston Astros in position to score, the Phillies right fielder made a sliding catch to keep the outing tied.

From there, in extra innings, Philly catcher J.T. Realmuto hit a solo homer to propel his squad to victory.

In the midst of all the commotion, Castellanos decided to rub a little salt in the Astros’ wound:

You love to see it. The reference there was to the Astros’ infamous cheating scandal. Specifically, the idea that Jose Altuve was wearing a wire that assisted him in the playoffs:

You will recall, Altuve himself had to come out and address this topic at one point.

Fans didn’t miss a beat. They immediately picked up on what Castellanos was alluding to and flocked to Twitter to react:

The World Series this year got off to a wild start when Paige Spiranac published a series of provocative photos to commemorate the occasion.

Then both teams took the field and participated in a game that more than lived up to the hype.

Philly is firmly in control at the moment, but things can change on a dime in this sport.

Will the Astros be able to shock the world and stage a comeback from this point forward?

Time will tell.
