Morgan allowed three earned runs on three hits while striking out five across five innings in the win over the Astros on Wednesday. He did not factor into the decision.
Morgan was perfect through three innings and had allowed only a pair of hits through five frames. Unfortunately, both of those hits were home runs. In addition, he surrendered a leadoff double in the sixth inning before being pulled and the runner came around to score. He tossed five innings for the fifth time in a row, and he has now allowed three runs in three straight starts. However, this was the 25-year-old's best start of his career with just three batters reaching base off him. He still has a bad ERA of 7.47 in 31.1 innings but a decent K/BB of 6.6.
