Luis Castillo (7-14) took the loss Monday against the Cardinals, allowing three runs on five hits across six innings. He walked two and struck out eight.
Castillo wasn't given any run support on the other side, and was sunken by a Paul Goldschmidt homer in the top of the first. Despite the loss, Castillo has re-emerged as a fantasy ace in the second half of the season. In his last 15 starts (93 innings), he has a 2.81 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 99 strikeouts.
