Charlie Morton pitched 7 2/3 innings against the Cards Thursday, allowing three hits while striking out seven. He is 6-3 on the year with the win, and he also earned a quality start. He threw 112 pitches, 75 for strikes. Morton carries a 4.03 ERA.
This was his best game of the year by far, just a gem where his curveball was working well. Hopefully, this outing will give him confidence in his arsenal and he can turn in more elite performances this year.
