Recap: Luis Castillo Throw a Complete Game, Reds Win 3-1

Luis Castillo has encountered a lot of bad luck this season. Tonight he threw the first nine inning complete game of the season for the Reds on the way to a 3-1 victory over the Cardinals.

Castillo allowed just two hits over the course of his complete game while striking out six batters. He is now 2-5 on the season with a 3.44 Earned Run Average.

Joey Votto supplied the offense in the first inning for the Reds with a two-run Home Run to deep right field that put Cincy on top 2-0.

Matt Carpenter pushed the lone run of the game for the Cardinals across in the bottom of the second inning driving in Brad Miller to cut the lead to 2-1.

Then, in the top of the third inning, Eugenio Suarez doubled to left field scoring Shogo Akiyama to give Cincinnati a 3-1 victory over the division rival Cardinals.

From that point on it was all Luis Castillo dealing an absolute gem of a game as the Reds improved to 20-25 on the season.

Tomorrow the Reds will face off against the Cardinals at 8:15 p.m. Eastern Time at Busch Stadium. Tejay Antone (0-1, 2.49) will take the mound against Dakota Hudson (2-2, 3.19).
