Castillo went 3 for 4 and finished a triple shy of the cycle. His sixth-inning double to the right-center field gap drove in two runs and extended Boston's lead to 5-1.
Jeff Samardzija (8-10) dropped a career-worst fifth straight decision. After giving up Castillo's two-run double, Samardzija allowed the next two hitters to reach before being pulled after surrendering his second walk.
