Taillon was solid in his last outing putting in a quality start while picking up his 14th win of the season in a 5-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs.
He went seven innings giving up five hits and a solo home run while he struck out five and walked three.
In 185.0 innings of work this season, the ace owns a decent 8.37 K/9, an excellent 2.24 BB/9, a solid 0.92 HR/9, and a solid 80.0% LOB%.
The end-result is a stellar 3.16 ERA and a solid 3.48 FIP.
Pittsburgh has played sub-par baseball in the past week winning three of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .231/.318/.406 to go with 23 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.
Lorenzen was roughed up in his last outing as he was tagged with his third loss of the season in a 0-6 shutout to the Miami Marlins.
He went four innings giving up nine hits, four earned runs, and one home run while he struck out zero and walked two.
In 75.1 innings of work this season, Lorenzen owns a weak 6.21 K/9, a mediocre 3.82 BB/9, an excellent 0.72 HR/9, and a solid 76.3% LOB%.
The end-result is a solid 3.35 ERA but a higher 4.21 FIP.
Cincinnati has struggled in the past week losing all five of their contests.
During that span their lineup is only slashing .167/.215/.247 to go with six extra-base hits and five RBI.

Pittsburgh takes down Cincinnati on the road.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Pirates -145
Lorenzen has put in his worst month of baseball with a 4.08 ERA, and also posted a .412 SLG% which shouldn’t bode well against this Pittsburgh lineup that has been slugging the ball well in the past week.
It has been a long time since Taillon has given up more than three runs, and he shouldn’t have a problem against a Cincinnati lineup that is slumping mightily.
Back the road team to pick up the win in this spot.
