Pitching Match-Up

Cincinnati: Luis Castillo (2-4 6.67 ERA)
L.A.: Rich Hill (1-1 7.11 ERA)

In Castillo's last start he gave up two earned runs on three hits in five innings in a 7-2 win over the New York Mets. The Reds have won two of his last three starts, and in two outings he has given up two earned runs in each and racked up 14 strikeouts. This will be Castillo’s first career start against the Dodgers.

In Hill’s last start he was not sharp getting tagged with five earned runs on seven hits in only four innings in an 8-5 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. After winning his first start of the season, the Dodgers have lost his last three where he has totaled 13 innings and given up 15 earned runs.

Reds at Dodgers Prediction 5/13/18

I expect Hill to be better today than his last start that he was making after a stint on the DL. However, how much better is the key. Cincinnati has hit left-handed pitching well this season and has been getting it done on the scoreboard scoring four or more runs in six of their last seven. They send out Luis Castillo who has looked better in his previous two, but they were at home, and this is on the road where he's 1-1 with a 7.20 ERA. The Dodgers haven't been lighting up the scoreboard, but they did get three yesterday on 12 hits and may break out here.
