Taillon sharp, Pirates beat Diamondbacks 5-4 to avoid sweep

PHOENIX (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates had what looked like an out turn into a home run. They made a couple of questionable decisions, endured some nerve-wracking moments in the ninth inning.
But they’re leaving Arizona with a win, which is all that really matters. Everything else can wait.
Jordy Mercer homered and had three RBIs, Jameson Taillon pitched seven effective innings and the Pirates avoided a sweep with a 5-4 victory over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
“We won. Let’s get on a plane and go home,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “We can peel back the layers later.”
The Pirates blew a five-run lead in the opener and were knocked for 13 runs in the second game.
