Reds lose the Brewers series after Luis Castillo's good start is spoiled

With two outs in the sixth inning, Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Luis Castillo left the game to a standing ovation from the crowd.

Castillo had just finished one of his best starts of the season, allowing one hit in 5 u2154 innings and retiring 15 consecutive batters at one point on Thursday against the Milwaukee Brewers. But when manager David Bell pulled Castillo from a game the Reds led by one run with two Brewers runners on base.

One batter later, the game was tied. Two batters later, the Brewers had a two-run lead.

Despite a vintage performance from Castillo, he took the loss as the Reds fell to the Brewers, 7-2, at Great American Ball Park.
