Pirates' Taillon upbeat in cancer fight

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jameson Taillon felt like he was in a movie, as if he was watching somebody else's life change and not his own.

The Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher felt something "odd" in his groin and alerted trainers while on the road earlier this month in Cincinnati. Two days later, there the 25-year-old was getting pulled aside by a doctor and being told there's a chance he has testicular cancer.

"My heart was racing," Taillon said.
