Gamethread: Jameson Taillon looks to start a new winning streak

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates will try again to remember that Miami is a really bad team, and they’ll do it with their ace on the mound. Jameson Taillon is, of course, coming off a complete-game, one-hit shutout. The Marlins will counter with . . . um . . . Trevor Richards. He’s an independent league refugee, but scouts consider his changeup to be a plus pitch, or even double secret plus plus. He’s making the jump to the bigs from AA this year, Miami being somewhat short of baseball players. After two starts, Richard has yet to last five innings. He’ll be facing the Pirates’ A team. Game time is 7:10pm.
