Dugger struggles in Reds’ loss in series opener in Milwaukee

Robert Dugger replaced the departed rotation spot of Tyler Mahle, and his first start back with the big league club did not go well. Dugger allowed a pair of home runs and four walks in just four innings. The Reds offense struggled for a fifth straight game as they lost players at the trade deadline. The Reds have scored just 9 runs over the last 5 games.

Offense, defense, umpire let down Luis Castillo in Reds loss

Luis Castillo gave the Reds six very strong innings, but his offense, defense and the home plate umpire let him down on this night. The Cardinals scored both of their runs in the first inning off Castillo, courtesy of a missed call that should have been strike 3 to end the inning, followed by two Reds errors.
