Pirates come up short
Reds 11, Pirates 9
Oliver Perez did not make it out of the fourth inning for the Pirates. (Al Behrman/AP)
Despite a home run and three RBIs from second baseman Jose Castillo, who is now hitting .476 for the year, the Pirates were, once again, unable to cool Cincinnati's hot bats. Left-hander Oliver Perez gave up eight runs in 3 1/3 innings as Pittsburgh fell to 0-6.
