Taillon struck out seven, ending the game with a 3.33 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Taillon set a season high for strikeouts and pitched solidly in his third start back from testicular cancer surgery. The 25-year-old is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA while registering 16 Ks in 16 innings since returning.
