Game Thread: Jameson Taillon leads quest for series win

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Jameson Taillon faces young gun Tyler Mahle in today’s 1:35 p.m. game looking to get the Pirates a series win over the Reds, which, unexciting as it might sound, hasn’t been the most common thing in recent years.

Gregory Polanco is apparently good to go after fouling a ball off his foot Friday and sitting out Saturday.

The lineups:


  1. Jesse Winker, RF
  2. Eugenio Suarez, 3B
  3. Joey Votto, 1B
  4. Scooter Gennett, 2B
  5. Adam Duvall, LF
  6. Tucker Barnhart, C
  7. Jose Peraza, SS
  8. Tyler Mahle, P
  9. Billy Hamilton, CF
