Neither team is playing particularly well with both under the .500 mark, but the total is certainly appealing.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Reds RH Luis Castillo (3-1, 1.97 ERA) vs. Giants RH Dereck Rodriguez (3-4, 5.75)

Castillo is facing San Francisco for the second time in a week after yielding four runs and four hits with nine strikeouts over seven innings of a no-decision on Sunday. "He was throwing a no-hitter until the sixth," Posey told reporters. "He was tough - really tough. Being able to score four runs off him is a nice accomplishment." The reigning National League Pitcher of the Month is 6-2 with a 1.62 ERA in his last 13 starts dating to last season.

Rodriguez has struggled in his last two starts, allowing a total of 14 runs - 12 earned - over eight innings. The son of Hall-of-Famer Ivan Rodriguez gave up a career-high four homers in Saturday's 9-2 loss to the Reds. "This is uncharted territory, so I'm just going to go out there like every other day and just battle," he told reporters. "You just forget about it and move on. You think about bad outings too much, it'll eat you up. In this game, you've got to have a short memory."

Sure it's enticing to go with the OVER here but be careful.  The UNDER is 11-2 in Castillo’s last 13 starts overall.

The OVER is 6-0 in the Giants last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter however.
