San Diego Padres
Lauer was efficient in his last outing but got the no-decision as San Diego would later go on to win 3-2 against the Colorado Rockies.
He pitched five scoreless-innings giving up zero hits while he struck out two and walked two.
In 91.2 innings of work this season, Lauer owns a mediocre 7.56 K/9, a slightly high 3.83 BB/9, a slightly high 1.28 HR/9, and a low 71.2% LOB%.
The end-result is a high 5.01 ERA and a slightly lower but still high 4.69 FIP.
San Diego has played solid baseball in the past week winning four of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .225/.279/.404 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.
Castillo pitched a gem in his last outing as he collected his eighth win of the season in a 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
He pitched 6.2 scoreless innings giving up just two hits while he struck out 11 and walked two.
In 143.1 innings of work this season, the righty owns a solid 8.92 K/9, a decent 2.70 BB/9, a high 1.51 HR/9, and a weak 68.5% LOB%.
The end-result is a high 4.83 ERA and a more respectable 4.33 FIP.
Cincinnati has played sub-par baseball in the past week winning just two of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .255/.320/.442 to go with 25 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.

Cincinnati handles their business at home against San Diego.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Reds -1.5
Castillo’s last game shown glimpses of what he is capable of and against a San Diego team that doesn’t hit as well against righties, I expect him to put in another quality start.
Lauer has struggled on the road where he owns a 5.48 ERA to go with a slash line of .310/.396/.472, and he is about to face a lineup who owns a .760 OPS at home.
I’ll back the better pitcher and lineup in this one.
