Pirates' Jameson Taillon: Hit hard in loss to Cubs

Taillon was hit hard in Sunday's loss to the Cubs, allowing four runs on eight hits and a walk in just four innings. He struck out five.

The rookie was excellent through his first two starts, but he came crashing down to earth Sunday, allowing three home runs through the third inning and running his pitch count up to 85 before being pulled after the fourth. Taillon's ERA rose to a still respectable 3.50 after the rough outing, and he will look to get back on track in a more favorable matchup versus the Dodgers at home on Friday.
