With more than half of their 2018 home run total hit by players sidelined with injuries, the Brewers managed just two singles off Luis Castillo through the first six innings and couldn't overcome a nine-run deficit en route to a 10-4 loss to the Reds on Monday night at Miller Park to open a seven-game homestand.

Castillo strikes out eight, Reds cruise
(17. 4. 2018, 06:00:11, mlb.com)
Reds right-hander Luis Castillo allowed four runs, five hits and three walks to go with eight strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings vs. the Brewers on Monday night.
Spin: With the Reds ahead by nine, Garcia carried a shutout into the seventh before allowing a four-spot to smudge his final line. Through the first five innings, Milwaukee had notched only two singles. Travis Shaw, who had one of those knocks, was erased in the second inning when Jesus Aguilar bounced into a double play.
Castillo had a 3.12 ERA in 15 starts for the Reds last season after his promotion from Double-A Pensacola. In a rotation that features four young starters, he was the only one who came to Spring Training assured of a rotation spot. But he started out the regular season inconsistent and winless (0-2, 7.31 ERA). In his two losses, the Reds wound up giving up double-digit run totals. (více...)

Castillo impressive, strikes out 8 Brewers
(17. 4. 2018, 04:35:02, MLB.com)
Luis Castillo already had three starts this season, but Monday vs. the Brewers marked the return of the electric pitcher the Reds coveted so much as a rookie in 2017. With a changeup that helped pile up swings and misses, Castillo struck out eight over 6 2/3 innings at Miller Park. (více...)
Castillo registers quality start vs. Phillies
(12. 4. 2018, 07:28:31, mlb.com)
Reds right-hander Luis Castillo did not factor in the decision after giving up three runs on five hits with no walks and four strikeouts in six innings Wednesday vs. the Phillies.
Spin: Though the quality start is a step in the right direction, Castillo served up two more long balls Wednesday to run his season total to four in just 16 innings. The early homers should not be too troubling, as Castillo did quite well in that department last season (1.1 HR/9) and in the Minors (0.4 HR/9). The 25-year-old will carry a 3.64 xFIP into his next scheduled start April 16 against the Brewers in Milwaukee. (více...)
