Lance Lynn vs. Luis Castillo

Cincinnati will look to take Game 2 of this weekend series on Raisel Iglesias bobblehead night.

Lynn last pitched against Arizona, and he went six full, gave up two runs on four hits, walked five and struck out three. He will look to carry his dominant July into his first August start. Last month, he posted a 1.47 ERA and 1.01 WHIP and never pitched less than 5 1/3 innings in a start.

Castillo was exceptional in his last start against the Fish when he outdueled the pitcher for whom he was traded: Dan Straily. He pitched a career-high eight full, gave up one run on three hits, walked one and struck out six. It was the first time a Reds starter pitched eight innings since 1940 or something like that.

Go Reds!
