The Pittsburgh Pirates (11-6) take on the San Francisco Giants (8-12) in game two of a three-game series. Jameson Taillon will make his fifth start of the season tonight. His last home start was 17 days ago against the St Louis Cardinals when he allowed one run over seven innings. The Giants will send out veteran lefty Derek Holland, who has a 4.09 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP, with 27 strikeouts in 22 innings. He gave up four runs over six innings at home against the Colorado Rockies in his last start.
The Pirates have called up Cole Tucker and Bryan Reynolds, and both are starting today, with Tucker at short and Reynolds in center field. For more information on each player, check out The Book on Cole Tucker and Bryan Reynolds.
