Taillon was brilliant in his second start of the season collecting the win against the Cincinnati Reds. He went the distance with nine scoreless innings while he only gave up one hit to go along with seven strikeouts and two walks.
The Pirate’s ace stat line is looking good as he owns a 10.05 K/9, 1.26 BB/9, and a .63 HR/9 to go with a shiny 1.26 ERA and 2.33 FIP. His stat line is bound to take a hit once his lucky .133 BABIP starts to regress, but don’t expect this young stud to fade away.
Pittsburgh’s lineup continues to be one of the most efficient lineups in the league slashing .294/.359/.519 to go along with 26 extra-base hits and 41 RBI in the last week. They have also been one of the best squads at plate discipline with a walk-to-strikeout ratio of 79:49.
Richards’ early season struggles continued in his second start only making it four innings giving up three earned off of six hits while striking out two and walking three. He has been ineffective in his first two starts needing 93 pitches to make if 4.1 innings in his first start and 82 pitches to make it through four innings in his last start.
The rookies ERA now sits at 8.64 while his FIP is at 4.35. Working with only three pitches, he has yet to fool any lineup really, while he has also been unfortunate with a high .448 BABIP. Things won’t get any easier for him as this hot Pittsburgh lineup awaits him.
As expected, this Miami lineup has been struggling to begin the season only slashing .210/.279/.315 in the last week while only hitting nine extra-base hits and 15 RBI. They’ve also been undisciplined at the plate racking up 116 strikeouts to only 42 walks.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction: Taillon, Pittsburgh dominante Miami
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Pirates -1.5
Taillon has been on another level and will get to face a sub-par Miami lineup. I don’t expect him to pitch another gem like he just did, and even if he gives up a couple of runs, their lineup should give him enough run support to collect another win.
