The Pirates couldn’t score enough behind Gerrit Cole on Monday, losing 4-3 in extra innings. Then they put up more than enough for Tyler Glasnow in a 12-3 romp last night.
Clint Hurdle sends Jameson Taillon to the mound to start the third game of the four-game series. Taillon has been Pittsburgh’s second-best starter but that’s only because Ivan Nova has been a sort of supernova.
Taillon is 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA. He’s got 24 strikeouts to 12 walks but that ratio is probably the next thing he has to work on.
He would also like to get 18 outs tonight, something he hasn’t done for two starts now. He did the first time he faced the Reds this season (6 innings, 4 hits, 1 walk).
It’s only May and Rookie Davis’ ERA already needs a vacation.
The Reds’ rookie gave up 3 earned in 4 innings to start his season (12.00). Then his ERA went down to 6.43 with 4 innings of one-run ball before going back up near a dozen (11.17) when he was torched for 7 earned in 2.2 innings at Milwaukee.
That ERA is going to go back down in this one but he better stabilize things before he goes into cardiac arrest.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction: Taillon outpitches Davis and the Pirates’ bullpen does its job.
I’m not going out on any limbs here. Jameson Taillon is turning into an elite pitcher in this league and he’ll pitch like one again tonight. Davis should be all right but he won’t get through the innings that Taillon will.
