Biggest Play of the Game
According to Fangraphs WPA statistic (winning percentage added), the most important play of the game was Luis Castillo allowing a 2-run home run to Daniel Descalso with 2 outs in the 1st inning, giving the Diamondbacks a 2-1 lead. That play decreased the Reds chances of winning by 17.9% (from 57.2% to 39.3%).
Eugenio Suarez hit his 10th home run of the season. Suarez now has a 155 wRC+ on the season.
Joey Votto had a two hit night.
David Hernandez pitched two perfect innings in relief. He has a 2.50 ERA/2.56 FIP in 18.0 innings pitched in 2018.
Luis Castillo‘s recent run of solid stars was halted a bit tonight. He walked three batters tonight, the biggest being Jake Lamb right before he gave up a two out home run to Daniel Descalso. His final line certainly wasn’t awful, but the Reds are really wanting Castillo to take that ace role and run with it: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 1 HR, 4 ER, 3 BB, 6 K.
Scott Schebler and Adam Duvall both went 0 for 4. The four man outfield rotation has produced four below average hitters so far in 2018.
