Result: Loss
The Cincinnati Reds are riding a four-game winning streak and are going for the sweep of this four-game series on Wednesday. While they are making a series push for a playoff spot, the NL Central-worst Pittsburgh Pirates are heading in the opposite direction, entering this contest off seven consecutive losses.

Cincinnati right-hander Luis Castillo (2-5, 3.44 ERA) is coming off a nine-inning complete game while allowing just two hits in a 3-1 win at St. Louis. He owns a 3.00 ERA in nine career starts against the Pirates who hand the ball to J.T. Brubaker.

Brubaker (1-1, 5.34 ERA) was lit up for seven runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings of an 8-1 loss to Chicago White Sox last time out. This will be his first start against the Reds, who have scored 26 runs over their last four games.
