Cannonballs coming: Taillon throws three strong innings in rehab

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Miami Marlins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Less than three weeks after having surgery for testicular cancer, Jameson Taillon threw three scoreless innings in a rehab start as Altoona (26-21) beat Erie, 3-2. Taillon fanned six and allowed one hit and one walk, while throwing 29 of 47 pitches for strikes. Yeudy Garcia followed, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks in two innings. He struck out one. Edwin Espinal went 3-4 with his sixth HR. He’s now hitting 312/362/510. Jackson Williams also went deep, his first. Elvis Escobar was 3-4 with a double.

Kevin Newman: 1-5
Kevin Kramer: 0-5
Connor Joe: 1-4
Jin-De Jhang: 1-3
Jordan Luplow: 0-4
Jared Lakind: 3 IP, 3 H, K
Tate Scioneaux: IP, BB, K

UPDATE: PuncSpeedChunk posted a report from the game here.

— Nick Kingham gave up one run over six and a third innings as Indianapolis (27-21) edged Rochester, 2-1. Kingham left after allowing a one-out double in the seventh and the run scored after he was out. He allowed only two other hits, walked one and fanned five. Austin Meadows continued his climb out of the depths, going 3-4 with a pair of doubles. He’s 14-for-30 (.467) in his last eight games.

Chris Bostick: 1-4
Phil Gosselin: 1-4
Eric Wood: 0-2
Dovydas Neverauskas: 0.2 IP, H

— Dario Agrazal had his worst start of the year, giving up eight runs, five earned, on eight hits over three and two-thirds innings as Bradenton (29-22) lost to Jupiter, 10-5. Kevin Krause went 3-5 and is now batting 348/411/636, and I still can’t figure out whether the Pirates regard him as a prospect. (Why, for instance, does a guy hitting like that always bat at the bottom of the order?) Christian Kelley was 2-5.

Cole Tucker: 1-4, SB (27), CS (7)
Ke’Bryan Hayes: 1-4, BB
Logan Hill: 1-3, BB

— West Virginia (22-24) lost to Hagerstown, 7-2. Matt Anderson lasted only two innings, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk. He struck out four. Clark Eagan went 2-4 with a pair of doubles.

Adrian Valerio: 1-4
Ty Moore: 1-5
Hunter Owen: 1-5
