Taillon (4-6) allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.
Taillon wasn't especially sharp Tuesday, but his final stats were a bit tainted by two weakly-hit singles by Brewers' leadoff man Lorenzo Cain. Cain beat out infield singles in the first and third innings and was eventually driven in by Jesus Aguilar in both frames. Taillon's mediocre outing raised his season ERA back above the 4.00 plateau. He'll look to put forth a more polished performance Sunday against the Diamondbacks.
Taillon (4-5) picked up the win in Wednesday's 5-4 victory over the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over seven innings while striking out four.
The right-hander threw 72 of 108 pitches for strikes while delivering his third quality start in his last four outings and sixth of the year. Taillon will take a 3.94 ERA into his next start Tuesday at home against the Brewers.
Taillon (3-5) took the loss Thursday, allowing three earned runs over 5.0 innings. He racked up seven strikeouts but also allowed eight hits and a walk over 92 pitches.
Taillon wasn't necessarily the problem for the Pirates as he kept them in the game before the mixture of Tyler Glasnow and Michael Feliz coughed up five earned runs behind him. Still, it wasn't Taillon's best effort overall; his eight hits allowed tied for his second-most in a single outing this season. His strikeout total makes it four straight starts with at least six K's, however. Taillon is lined up to make his next start Tuesday against Clay Buchholz and the Diamondbacks.
Taillon (3-4) struck out six in eight scoreless innings in a win over the Cardinals on Friday. He allowed three hits and one walk.
Taillon issued only one extra-base hit in Friday's contest and threw 67 of 104 pitches for strikes. This was Taillon's fifth quality start on the year, and he's now brought his ERA down to 3.97 to go along with a 1.16 WHIP. The right-hander has a 60:18 K:BB in 65.2 innings, and he'll look to even his record in his next start against the Dodgers at home.
Taillon allowed three earned runs on five hits while walking one and striking out six across 6.1 innings Sunday against the Cardinals. He did not factor into the decision.
The Cardinals' didn't hit Taillon particularly hard, as they generated only one extra-base hit against him -- a double to lead off the game by Matt Carpenter. His success came from nine groundball outs, which helped him limit the Cardinals to just six baserunners throughout his 6.1 innings of work. Taillon was shelled for six earned runs in his previous outing against the Reds so this was a needed rebound, and he'll look to keep it going when he faces the Cardinals again in his next start, this time coming at St. Louis.
