Charlie Morton pitched five innings against the Giants Saturday, allowing four hits, two runs (both earned), and three walks while striking out three batters. The Braves offense was held scoreless, and Morton got the loss, his record is now 13-6 on the year. He threw 97 pitches, 51 for strikes, and carries a 3.49 ERA.
It was certainly not a great game for Morton, allowing seven baserunners over five innings and trouble throwing strikes. But Morton did limit the damage, which he is known for, and kept the Braves in the game.
