Castillo (8-12) took the loss against the Padres on Thursday, allowing five runs (two earned) on five hits over five innings. He didn't allow a walk and stuck out seven.
Coming off an impressive start against the Cardinals in his previous outing, Castillo gave up three home runs in a start for the first time this season against the Padres on Thursday night. A costly error in the fourth inning led to three unearned runs after Francisco Mejia connected on a three-run shot to give the Padres a 5-0 lead. Castillo continues to show his strikeout upside (9.0 K/9 in 2018), but maintaining consistency has been one of his biggest challenges. He'll carry a 4.79 ERA into his next start, which is scheduled for Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Castillo (8-11) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out 11 across 6.2 scoreless innings to earn the win Saturday against the Cardinals.
Castillo flashed his tantalizing potential again on Saturday, dominating the Cardinals by recording 18 of his 20 outs via either strikeout or groundball. He was plenty deceptive -- he generated 20 swinging strikes on 104 total pitches -- and set a new career-high with the 11-strikeout performance. Castillo has been much improved since the All-Star break, turning in a 3.15 ERA to go along with 46 strikeouts in 40 innings despite two starts in which he allowed five earned runs.
Castillo (7-10) earned the win Sunday against the Giants, allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits in 6.2 innings. He struck out nine.
It was a nice bounce-back effort from Castillo, who was tagged for five runs his last time out. The 25-year-old was sharp throughout this one, tossing 76 of his 98 pitches for strikes en route to picking up his first quality start in three appearances this month. After struggling through the first half of the season, Castillo has posted a solid 2.10 ERA through five second half starts (30 innings). He'll look to keep things rolling in his next start, which will come on the road against the Cubs.
Castillo (6-10) allowed five runs on five hits and one walk while fanning seven across 5.2 innings Sunday as he took the loss against Arizona.
Castillo surrendered a three-run homer in the first inning, followed by a two-run home run in the sixth prior to exiting with a 5-2 deficit. He's been bitten by the long ball over his two previous outings (both resulted in losses), giving up three homers across 11 frames. Castillo's next start appearance lines up for Saturday against San Francisco.
Castillo (6-9) surrendered two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three across 5.1 innings as he was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Nationals.

Castillo has shown major improvement of late, allowing two or fewer runs in each of his previous four outings. He's improved his ERA from 5.58 to 4.91 over that span.
