Kind of a tricky Tuesday with only five games to choose from, so I’m looking to the Reds in this makeup game.

Luis Castillo (6-10) had his ups and downs through May, but the veteran right-hander has shown steady command ever since to allow three earned runs or less in his last 13 starts. The Dominican pitcher has won his last three starts. 

The Reds offence has also been unstoppable of late ranking second in runs scored over the last seven days – a big improvement that has helped them win eight of their last 10.

Cincinnati are coming off a four-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates to improve to 61-51 in the NL Central, five games behind the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Indians (54-55), meanwhile, are targeting their second straight win after beating the Detroit Tigers 7-5 on Sunday night. Lefty Sam Hentges (1-4) will take the mound for Cleveland.

Verdict

With the Indians in a slump, I like Cincinnati to add to their impressive 30-24 record on the road.
