Pittsburgh won both games over the weekend to end up with two out of three in Cincinnati. It took Jameson Taillon 108 pitches to get through four innings but he only gave up two runs (one earned) and the Pirates won, 5–2.
Trevor Williams gets the first game against the Cubs this week. He was on the other side of the Rich Hill game against the Dodgers late last week.
Hill lost his no-hitter in the 10th but Williams had to have been pretty good for that to even be possible. He held the Dodgers scoreless over eight innings, despite giving up seven hits and four walks.
The Cubs could do little to slow down Rhys Hoskins in Philadelphia over the weekend.
Hoskins went deep in all three games, two of them Philllies’ wins, including a solo homer in the eighth yesterday that gave Philly a 6–3 lead that would go on to be the final score.
Mike Montgomery has made his last two starts against Cincinnati and didn’t give up a run in either one. He went 10.1 innings in total, giving up seven hits and just two walks to eight strikeouts.
He’s had some success against the Pirates in his career, too. Pittsburgh hits just .250 (6–for–24) against him as a team, with nothing more than a double.
