The fans at Nationals Park will be treated to a game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Washington Nationals when they take their seats on Friday.

Right hander Luis Castillo will take the mound for the Reds to start this game. Castillo is 0-0 this season with a 0.00 ERA.

The Nationals will counter Castillo with Stephen Strasburg. Right hander Strasburg has a 3.28 ERA to go along with a 8-2 record this season.

Castillo, who was the most highly regarded of three prospects Cincinnati acquired in the Dan Straily trade with Miami this winter, is expected to make his big-league debut Friday. The 24-year-old displayed excellent command at Double-A Pensacola, striking out 81 over 80 1/3 innings while walking only 13. Castillo, who is 21-22 with a 2.66 ERA in 169 appearances (54 starts) over his minor-league career, has surrendered only five homers and yielded two runs or fewer in 12 of his 14 outings this season.

Strasburg rebounded from his worst start of the season with a road win Saturday against the New York Mets, allowing two runs on six hits while fanning five across 5 1/3 innings. The two-time All-Star has endured a mediocre June (2-1, 4.24 ERA) after cruising through May (4-0, 2.78) and struggled at home (2-1, 4.15) much more than on the road (6-1, 2.61). Joey Votto is 3-for-11 with two homers against Strasburg, who is 2-1 with a 4.35 ERA in six starts versus the Reds.

Oddsmakers currently have the Nationals listed as 262-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Despite sporting the highest-scoring offense in the National League for the better part of the first half of the season, run production has been a hit-or-miss proposition for the Washington Nationals lately. The NL East-leading Nationals will try to find more consistent offense starting Friday when they host the opener of a three-game set against the Cincinnati Reds, who own the worst pitching in the majors.

Since matching its high-water mark of the season at 17 games over .500 with a June 8 win over Baltimore, Washington has faced four teams with losing records and pitching staffs that rank in the bottom half of the majors in ERA. Over that 13-game stretch, the Nationals have either scored three runs or fewer (six times) or at least seven (seven times) – a level of inconsistency which has contributed to their 5-8 mark since beating the Orioles. While wins have been hard to come by of late for Washington, they have been virtually nonexistent for the Reds (30-41), who have dropped 11 of 12 overall to fall a season-worst 11 games below .500. Cincinnati has surrendered an average of six runs during its slide and ranks last in the majors in ERA (5.08) overall.

Last time out for Washington, they were a 2-1 loser as they battled the Marlins on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Marlins at 130 were rewarded, while the 3 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Last time out for Cincinnati, they were a 8-3 loser as they battled the Rays on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Rays at -109 were rewarded, while the 11 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
