The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Cincinnati Reds will meet up on the MLB diamond Saturday to continue their series.
In the Friday opener, Arizona posted five runs in the fifth inning and hung on for an intense 7-5 win.
For Saturday’s game, the Diamondbacks will send out Alex Young to start. Over 58.2 innings and a 6-3 record this year, Young has a 3.84 ERA with 46 Ks and 18 BBs.
Over on the Reds’ side, they’re going with Luis Castillo as the Saturday starter. Across 166.0 innings and a 14-5 mark, Castillo has a 3.25 ERA with 198 Ks and 66 BBs.
The Diamondbacks are 4-1 in their last five in game two of a series and 4-1 in Young’s last five road starts. The under is 3-0-1 in Arizona’s last four in game two of a series and the over is 5-2 in their last seven Saturday games.
Meanwhile, the Reds are 2-5 in their last seven in game two of a series and 8-3 in Castillo’s last 11 starts. Cincinnati is 8-3 in Castillo’s last 11 starts on grass and 1-5 in his last six in game two of a series.
Young has been on a nice run over his last three games, posting six earned over 15.2 innings of work on 16 total hits. He’s also 2-0 in that time after a three-game losing streak.
As for Castillo, he’s been up and down over his last four games or so but is sitting on a three-game win streak. This should be an interesting pitching matchup; consistency-wise I like Young a little better right now so I’m going Diamondbacks.
