Jameson Taillon pitched six innings, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five in New York’s 5-4 win against the Rangers in Game 1 of Tuesday’s doubleheader.
Taillon went 3-1 over his final eight starts and brought his ERA back under 4.00. His 14-5 was partially a product of his potent offense that both allowed him to win despite giving up runs or got him off the hook like Tuesday. Through May, Taillon’s ERA was 2.49 and he was 5-1, after that he went 9-4 but his ERA was 4.44. Taillon finishes the regular season 14-5 with a 3.91 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 151 strikeouts in 177 1/3 innings across 32 starts. Overall great numbers considering he went late in drafts and was even undrafted in a lot of leagues.
