The Milwaukee Brewers and the Cincinnati Reds will finish up their MLB series on Thursday.
In the Tuesday opener of this set, the Brewers secured a 4-2 win. On Wednesday, Milwaukee kept it going with a 9-2 victory.
For Thursday’s game, the Brewers will send out Chase Anderson for the start. Across 134.0 innings and a 7-4 mark so far, Anderson has a 4.30 ERA with 122 Ks and 48 BBs.
Over on the Reds’ side, they’re going with Luis Castillo on Thursday. In his 185.2 innings and 15-7 record so far, Castillo has a 3.25 ERA with 218 Ks and 75 BBs.
The Brewers are 6-1 in their last seven in game three of a series and 4-0 in Anderson’s last four starts versus a team with a losing record. Milwaukee is 7-3 in Anderson’s last 10 Thursday starts and 8-3 in his last 11 in game three of a series.
Meanwhile, the Reds are 5-1 in their last six in game three of a series and 4-0 in Castillo’s last four Thursday starts. Cincinnati is 1-4 in Castillo’s last five home starts and 0-4 in his last four at home versus a team with a winning record.
Anderson has put up just one earned over his last 10.0 innings across two starts, striking out 10 and giving up only four hits. Castillo has been solid as well, with three quality starts in his last four outings—he’s just 1-2 in his last three starts, though.
If there’s a spot to take the Reds in this series it’s probably here, but Castillo is going to need some offensive help and that’s no guarantee.
