Top 9: Castro struck out swinging against Craig Kimbrel

Final Line: 0-for-5, 4 K

Notes: Out of all of the golden sombreros that we’ve highlighted this season, Castro’s surprised me the most.  Possessing a K% of 14.3 in 530 plate appearances, the shortstop has shown the ability to make consistent, hard contact since bursting on the scene last season.  But on Sunday, the Braves’ young, power arms were too much for him, as he notched a sombrero out of the leadoff spot.

Total 2011 Sombreros: 89
