Nick Castellanos’ family not happy with Phillies fans

Philadelphia is a notoriously difficult place to play. Oftentimes, it’s the opponent of whatever Philly team is playing that gets the brunt of the negativity, but sometimes it’s one of their own. Just ask Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos.

During Game 5 of the World Series on Thursday night, Philly fans ran out of patience. They saw their series lead slipping away and decided to take it out on Castellanos and the outfielder’s family.

Castellanos’ wife, Jess, and his mother, Michelle, both sounded off after the game about treatment from Phillies fans.

The vitriol aimed at Castellanos is nothing new. He was booed off the field earlier this season and when asked about it, engaged in a heated exchange with a Phillies reporter.

Needless to say, it’s been a rough transition to Philly life for Castellanos and his family.

Although Castellanos has shined with the glove, he’s done little at the plate. Through five World Series games, he’s gone 3-for-20 (.150/.190/.200) with just one RBI and eight strikeouts. But he isn’t alone. The Phillies have just one hit with runners in scoring position since Game 1 and were no-hit in Game 4.

The Astros and Phillies will meet in Game 6 on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.
