Glendale resident Juan Castro was on the field to celebrate the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 2-1 win against the Philadelphia Phillies in Game Two of the National League Division Series on Friday afternoon at Dodger Stadium.

Castro, a utility infielder for the Dodgers, played for the first time in the postseason when he pinch ran for pinch-hitter Jim Thome in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Making his second trip to the playoffs after a stint earlier in his career with the Cincinnati Reds, Castro was eventually stranded at third base when Manny Ramirez popped out to end the eighth.

Castro stayed in to play third base in the top of the ninth.
