The Pittsburgh Pirates dumped the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday afternoon 5-4. Jordy Mercer homered and had three RBI for the Bucs. Jameson Taillon was the winner allowing two runs on five hits in seven innings of work. Taillon has enjoyed pitching in the afternoon and is 9-2 for his career before the sun goes down. With the win the Pirates salvage the finale of the three game set in the desert. The Pirates are off today and open a three game weekend series at home to the Cincinnati Reds Friday night on WESB.
