Taillon, relievers fuel Pirates past Cardinals

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- With his club locked in a three-way tussle in the National League wild-card race, St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny on Sunday handed the ball to a rookie right-hander making his first start of 2017.

John Gant's appearance against the Pittsburgh Pirates was abbreviated, but useful. He allowed one run in three innings. The bullpen? Not so good, as relievers Seung Hwan Oh and Brett Cecil yielded home runs as the Pirates beat the Cardinals 4-1 at PNC Park.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals' offense missed key opportunities, producing just four hits.
