Middle-inning struggles doom Pirates SP Charlie Morton to defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

If any Pirates starter was going to wreck the momentum, at least temporarily, it seemed destined to be Charlie Morton. He has been pitching poorly and his last performance ended their three-game winning streak.

This time it ended a four-game winning streak. Morton allowed five on six hits in six innings to take the loss against Colorado on Sunday. He walked two and whiffed six.

Morton breezed through the first three without allowing a hit before the roof caved in. He was sent reeling by four straight hits to start the fourth, including a double by Nolan Arenado and triple by Ben Paulsen that resulted in three runs. His own two-base error tallied two more in the sixth.

He has given up 26 runs over his last 54 2/3 innings and has lost four of his last six decisions.

Pirates' Charlie Morton gets roughed up by Marlins in loss Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pirates starter Charlie Morton had a rough outing against the Marlins on Tuesday night. The right-hander allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings in the 5-2 loss. With the outing, his ERA rises to 4.20.

Morton (8-5) was given a an early 1-0 lead in the first inning, but he was unable to make that stand up. He gave up individual runs in the fourth and fifth before the Marlins put up a three-spot in the sixth.

Morton is now 2-1 with a 3.27 ERA over his past five starts. Tuesday's start snapped a personal four-game win streak for the right-hander.

Pirates' Charlie Morton shuts down Giants' offense on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pirates right-hander Charlie Morton delivered a strong start against the Giants on Thursday night. Morton held the Giants scoreless over 6 2/3 innings. He allowed four hits and two walks while striking out eight in the 4-0 victory.

Morton (8-4, 4.06 ERA) was cruising through his outing until he got into some trouble in the sixth inning. He loaded the bases with two outs, prompting manager Clint Hurdle to make a pitching change. The bullpen took over from there, successfully keeping the shutout in tact.

This was Morton's second scoreless outing this month. Unfortunately, he allowed a total of seven earned runs in his other two August starts. Still, Morton is 2-0 with a 2.33 ERA over those four starts.

Pirates SP Charlie Morton knocked out too soon in no-decision
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

If Pirates starter Charlie Morton had performed better Sunday night against the Dodgers, he might have stuck around longer. And if had stuck around longer, he would have been the beneficiary of an offensive onslaught. And if he had been the beneficiary of an offensive onslight, he would have won.

Instead, Morton received a no-decision after pitching just five innings and allowing five runs on 10 hits. He walked three and fanned six.

His struggles started in the first, when three singles led to two runs. An Adrian Gonzalez RBI hit in the third and three-hit fifth, which included a double by Alberto Callaspo, all but ended his evening.

Morton was coming off his finest outing in two months, but has generally struggled lately. He has yielded at least three runs in seven of his last nine starts as his ERA has risen to 4.48.
