On the mound for Cincinnati tonight is rookie Luis Castillo, who will be making his third career start. In his first two big league outings, he has allowed four runs on 10 hits in 10 23 innings with eight walks and 14 strikeouts. Prior to that, he had a 2.58 ERA and 1.01 WHIP with 81 strikeouts in 80 13 innings at Double-A Pensacola.
