'They’re here for a reason': Reds lose the series after Luis Castillo's good start is spoiled

With two outs in the sixth inning Thursday, 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 against the Milwaukee Brewers. But when manager David Bell pulled Castillo from a game the Reds led by one run, the Brewers had two runners on base.

With standout reliever Tejay Antone unavailable, the Reds turned to Lucas Sims.

One batter later, reliever Lucas Sims allowed a game-tying double.
