Twice did Cincinnati rally on Monday evening to tie the game in Philadelphia, but it was never able to break through to get a lead.
Two unearned runs hurt the Reds in a one-run loss and an inability to touch the Phils’ bullpen assured that the home team got the last laugh.
Luis Castillo has given up 10 earned runs in two starts on the season. He’s given up six hits in each outing and has walked a total of four. He has punched out nine and I suspect he will fare better as the season wears on. He isn’t a bad talent but, unfortunately he isn’t surrounded by the best environment for pitchers.
The Reds have a lot to fix and it doesn’t feel like any of it is happening fast enough.
Rhys Hoskins hit his second home run of the season on Monday night, a two-run shot that started the scoring for Philadelphia.
Shortstop Scott Kingery also hit the first dinger of his big league career. Congratulations to him.
But reserve outfielder Nick Williams hit the biggest one, a go-ahead pinch hit solo job in the eighth inning that proved decisive.
Williams has been lobbying for more playing time already under new manager Gabe Kapler. But Kapler is adamant on giving all of his depth a chance to play, instead of sticking with the same nine guys every night.
The bench doing things like what Williams did on Monday night reinforces why his strategy will be a sound one if he gets the proper buy-in from his roster. Philly has some depth to its advantage.
