Castillo solid for 6, Stephenson homers as Reds edge Twins

CINCINNATI (AP) Luis Castillo pitched six effective innings, Tyler Stephenson homered to give the Reds a cushion they ended up needing, and Cincinnati held on to beat the Minnesota Twins 6-5 on Wednesday.

Jonathan India had three hits and Joey Votto drove in two runs for the Reds, who are hoping to make up ground in the playoff chase during a six-game homestand against last-place teams.

"We've got the Pirates coming," Stephenson said. "These are important games ahead."
