Cincinnati is off to a good start. If they are going to stay in the race they have to take advantage of series like this one.
Arizona split their series with Washington over the weekend. The bats have been up and down all season but they are 10th in runs so far. That is actually pretty good considering they have played most of the season without Ketel Marte and Christan Walker has been out for a week too.
Zac Gallen is their best pitcher. He has only made one start this season but looked pretty good striking out 8 Oakland hitters in just four innings. He needs to keep building up his pitch count to work deeper into games.
The bullpen is no sure thing right now. With the moves they have made, specifically trading Archie Bradley last season they do not have any great arms back there.
The Reds have cooled a bit but still, have to be happy with a record over .500 for their first 15 games. They just took two of three from the Indians and are still tops in the league in scoring at just over 6 runs per game.
Cincinnati has built their fast start without much from Luis Castillo. He has made three starts, one great, one average and one bad. I still like his stuff a lot though and feel good about him figuring it out.
The bullpen has been about league average, so far. They have trimmed some of the bigger names off the roster in that area to save some money and it might hurt them long term. We will see, bullpens are fickle.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
Castillo is due for a good start in this one. He has been off then on in the early part of season so the math makes sense. It will help that he is also facing a light lineup and at home. Gallen on the other side keeps up from paying too high a premium.
