Feels odd but I really want Taillon to mow down the Americans.

Taillon has them scoreless after two.

Got in a jam in the second after giving up a double to David Wright (who has been scolding hot in the WBC thus far), and then there was an error on a pop-up that fell out of the shortstop's glove. A bunt moved the runners over. On a dribbler, they got the lead runner in a pickle and then Taillon induced a groundout to end the threat.

Very impressive through 4, the fastball is steady (94-95) and he has located it well. For the most part he has thrown the curve for strikes. I haven't really noticed a 3rd pitch. If his D had showed up behind him he would have only allowed 1 run and less baserunners.

Really nice job in an elimination game against a lineup with 25 combined all-star games.

He looked sharp out there. Better defense behind him was much needed. One thing that stood out was his smooth, repeated delivery time after time. I'm not sure about a third pitch but a few times I noticed a pitch that came in around 86 to 88 with some movement but nothing like his curve. Possibly a changeup? His curve, that thing just drops off the table. Fooled Rollins bad.

That would not have happened if Russell Martin was at Shortstop...
