ABOUT LAST NIGHT: With the Indianapolis Indians down to their last strike in the bottom of the 10th inning, Rodolfo Castro and Diego Castillo went back-to-back with hard-hit line drives to defeat the Louisville Bats in walk-off fashion on Tuesday night, 5-4. Castro and Castillo were central in both beginning and ending the game for the Indians. Castro ignited the offense with a triple on T.J.
