      Reds' Luis Castillo: Works around six walks in win

      Luis Castillo (7-1) allowed two runs on two hits with seven strikeouts and six walks across six innings while earning a victory against the Astros on Monday.This was a pretty typical Castillo start. He's had control issues all season, but this was a new low, as Castillo walked a season-high six batters, raising his BB/9 to 4.5. However, opponents are also batting just .175 against Castillo, and as a result, he leads the league with a 5.4 H/9. That's enabled Castillo to post a 2.26 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. He is also 7-1 with 103 strikeouts in 87.2 innings this season. Castillo will look to keep his strong season going and maybe display a little better control in his next start Saturday at the Brewers.

      Reds' Luis Castillo: Ends mini slump

      Luis Castillo held the Cardinals to one run over six innings to get the win Tuesday, striking out eight while allowing two hits and four walks.The only run against Castillo came on the first batter he faced, a leadoff homer by Matt Carpenter. Castillo's last two outings were shakier, especially a 2.2-inning start against the Brewers on May 22. The four walks are a bit of a concern -- he now has allowed 11 walks in his last three starts, covering 14 innings.

      Reds' Luis Castillo: Scheduled to start Tuesday

      Reds' Luis Castillo: Settles for no-decision

      Luis Castillo allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits with four strikeouts and four walks across 5.1 innings during a no-decision against the Pirates in the first game of Monday's doubleheader.While he did allow 10 baserunners, Castillo fell victim to some poor defense in the sixth. The Cincinnati Reds had just taken their first lead in the bottom of the fifth when Cincinnati's infield committed two costly mistakes (one of which was recorded an error). Castillo could have been out of the inning, but instead, the Reds turned to their bullpen, which blew the lead and Castillo's chance at the win. With a 5-1 record, though, Castillo is experiencing a great season. He also has a 2.45 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, .187 batting average against and 82 strikeouts in 69.2 innings. He is scheduled to pitch next against the Nationals on Sunday.

      Reds' Luis Castillo: Dominant again

      Luis Castillo threw six scoreless innings against the Giants on Friday night to get his fourth win of the season. He struck out 11 while allowing two hits and five walks. He generated 15 swings and misses on his changeup, accounting for nine of his strikeouts, and threw his changeup 40 times in the effort, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.It's those five walks that drove Castillo's pitch count over 100 after six innings, leading to the early exit. He was facing a Giants team that scored four against him in his previous outing, his worst so far this season, albeit without Buster Posey, who is now on the injured list. He next faces a red-hot Cubs lineup back in Great American Ballpark, a challenge that will really test his newfound ace level.
