I am taking the Reds in this one. The momentum has completely shifted for the Pirates and Reds. After sweeping the Padres, the Pirates are now 1-5 in their last six games after getting a return sweep at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Meanwhile, the Reds put up 10 points on the road on Sunday to close out the first place Cubs. The series win over the Cubs makes me even more confident the Reds will come into Mondays game with more fight to dig themselves out of last place. They also have the advantage on the mound with Castillo. His mere presence typically signals good things for the Reds. He has a decent track record against the Pirates with 4.00 ERA and 12 earned runs in 27 innings pitched. However, the primary concern with this game will be the Pirates pitching rotation. Granted, they faced one of the best batting teams in the league in the Dodgers, but they were also getting pummeled by unacceptable margins. They gave up a combined 28 runs in three games. I like the Reds to score a bunch and Castillo to limit the damage and get the win.

Reds manager David Bell discusses Sonny Gray's start and Jose Iglesias' grand slam in an 8-1 win over the Pirates on Monday. Bobby Nightengale, Cincinnati Enquirer
Facing the Pittsburgh Pirates for the first time since a benches-clearing incident in Pittsburgh, Derek Dietrich brought back familiar memories when he crushed a solo home run in the second game of Monday's doubleheader at Great American Ball Park.
Dietrich drilled a full-count pitch from Pirates reliever Alex McRae into the final rows of seats in right field in the seventh inning of an eventual 8-1 win. He immediately dropped his bat and watched the ball for a few seconds around the batter's box before beginning his trot around the bases.

Redleg Nation: RN Recap: Defense, bullpen lead to Reds loss to Pirates in Game 1
The Reds defense, and bullpen, didn't exactly have the best day in game 1.... as the bullpen allowed 1 inherited runner to score against starter Luis Castillo, then gave up 5 more runs beyond that one in the loss to the Pirates.The Offense
For the second straight game there was plenty of offense out of the top of the lineup. Nick Senzel went 2-4 with a double, walk, run, and he had an RBI. Joey Votto went 3-5 with a double as he continues to show signs of putting things together. And Eugenio Suarez went 3-4 with a double and 2 RBI.
Bucs Dugout: Offense carries Pirates to 8-5 victory over Reds
Pittsburgh had a tough task with Luis Castillo on the mound for the Reds and Nick Kingham in charge of keeping the damage to a minimum for the first game of the doubleheader in Cincinnati. In the end, the Reds' bullpen couldn't keep the game knotted at four and the Pirates rode a four-run 8th to an 8-5 victory.
Kingham wasn't great but he wasn't bad either, giving up three runs on seven hits through 4.2 innings pitched. He also produced five strikeouts and yeilded just one walk.
Unable to get through the fifth, Kingham was replaced by Richard Rodriquez, who got the final out of the inning.

After Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Starling Marte connected with a slider that was elevated on the outside corner, Reds reliever David Hernandez took a quick peek at the flight of the ball and winced.
Marte crushed a two-run homer to right-center field in the eighth inning to give the Pirates a four-run lead in a previously back-and-forth game. The Reds' bullpen, which entered Monday with the best ERA in the National League, allowed five runs and six hits in 3 u2154 innings.
The Reds loaded the bases in the bottom of the eighth inning, but Pirates closer Felipe Vazquez struck out Nick Senzel on his way to earning a four-out save and handing the Reds an 8-5 loss in the first game of Monday's day-night doubleheader at Great American Ball Park.

Luis Castillo looks to rebound from his first bad start of the season against the Milwaukee Brewers last Wednesday where he didn't make it out of the third inning and gave up four runs on five hits while walking two and only striking out three.
