Luis Castillo allowed one run on two hits in 5.2 innings in the Reds' 5-3 win over the Pirates on Thursday. He struck out eight and walked three.
Castillo took advantage of a weak Pittsburgh lineup in this one, and his signature changeup was working for him throughout the start. Castillo still walked three, but this was a nice start for him after a disappointing 2018 season. He'll draw a much tougher matchup next Wednesday against Milwaukee at home.
