Cincinnati Reds at Colorado Rockies

8:10 PM ET

Luis Castillo vs. Jeff Hoffman

The Reds embark on a road trip to Wick Terrell country as they start a series at Coors Field for 3 games. Tonight will be another chance to see Luis Castillo, as the Reds young pitcher du jour makes his third big league start. He’s made it through at least 5 innings and given up 2 runs in each of his first two starts, and struck out 9 Brewers in his last time out.

He’ll face Jeff Hoffman for the Rockies, in his second season and a key part of Colorado’s youth movement. He’s been arguably the best Rockies starter lately, as he won in his first 4 starts, and has only had one blow-up thus far, giving up 9 runs against Arizona in his last start at Coors.

Go Reds!
