Baseball: Chris Castellanos pulls off a rare feat for Long Beach Poly
Junior pitcher Chris Castellanos of Long Beach Poly did something Tuesday night that few thought might be possible.
Last week, he threw a perfect game to defeat Long Beach Wilson and ace pitcher Chase DeJong, 1-0.
On Tuesday, he threw a complete game to defeat Lakewood and ace pitcher Shane Watson, 3-2.
Beating DeJong and Watson in back to back games is a remarkable accomplishment, considering both are USC signees and expected to be high draft choices.
Castellanos escaped a bases loaded jam in the bottom of the seventh to help Poly improve to 19-4 and 7-1 in the Moore League.
