Taillon, Pirates host Reds

The last time Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Jameson Taillon faced the Cincinnati Reds, only a third-inning single by the opposing pitcher prevented him from throwing a no-hitter.

The Pirates probably don't need Taillon to be nearly that good when they face the Reds on Tuesday in the first game of a three-game series at Great American Ball Park, but they are hoping he can be a streak stopper.

The Pirates had won eight of nine after beating the San Diego Padres on Thursday in the first game of a four-game series at PNC Park, but they dropped the next three games to fall out of first place in the National League Central. They've lost four of their last seven.
