Pirates face former prospect, Yankees ace in opener

The Pittsburgh Pirates will not only get to host the top team in baseball, but they also will get to see an old friend or two when the New York Yankees visit for games Tuesday and Wednesday.

Yankees right-hander Jameson Taillon (9-1, 3.32 ERA) is scheduled to start Tuesday opposite Pittsburgh left-hander Jose Quintana (1-4, 3.43 ERA). In addition, the Pirates could see New York closer Clay Holmes (4-0, 0.49 ERA, 15 saves).

Taillon and Holmes began their careers with Pittsburgh, and both are having the kind of success the Pirates at one time hoped or even expected they would have with their original team.
