      Astros' Charlie Morton: Makes enriching start Friday

      Charlie Morton (14-7) allowed two runs on four hits while striking out four over 5.1 innings in Friday's 3-2 win over the Red Sox.Morton, who triggered a $625,000 bonus in his contract by making his 25th start of the season, was dominant early, much like he's been in many of his previous 24 starts. He retired the first 13 batters before his perfect game was broken up by a Mitch Moreland double in the fifth inning. When the right-hander ran into trouble, the Houston Astros bullpen picked him up. Morton finished the regular season with a 3.62 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP and a 10.0 K/9, seemingly solidifying his spot in the rotation for the postseason.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Allows one run in Saturday win

      Charlie Morton (13-7) allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out five across seven innings to earn the win Saturday against the Angels.Morton fired six shutout innings before allowing a solo homer in the seventh inning, but the offense had already provided him with a five-run lead, and he was easily able to cruise to his 13th victory of the season. He's been hot throughout the month of September, as he's allowed just six earned runs over four starts to lower his ERA from 3.88 to 3.63, and he's been an excellent source of fantasy production down the stretch. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Red Sox.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Strikes out eight in loss to A's

      Charlie Morton (11-7) took the loss in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the A's. He was charged with three runs (two earned) on six hits with three walks and eight strikeouts.Morton gave up three hits (two for extra bases), issued a walk and committed an error in the second inning, but he was quite good otherwise. The right-hander has posted a 28:6 K:BB over his last four starts (21 innings) and could make up to four more starts before the end of the regular season, including one potentially against the White Sox. A home matchup against Seattle is next on the docket, although plans could change if Collin McHugh (finger) isn't cleared for Thursday's game against the Angels.

Morton lines up to face the Mariners at Safeco Field in his next start.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Fails to capitalize on run support

      Charlie Morton was tagged for three runs on four hits with one walk and five strikeouts over five innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Angels.Even though he only issued one walk, command was a problem for Morton. It took the veteran right-hander 88 pitches to get through five innings, and he plunked two hitters along the way. While his team ultimately came out on top, Morton will be disappointed with himself for not snagging personal win number 11 after being staked to a 4-0 lead through four innings. That elusive victory could well come in his next start, which is scheduled for Saturday against the Mets.
