      Astros' Charlie Morton: Takes loss Saturday

      Charlie Morton (12-3) allowed three runs on seven hits, one walk and one hit batsman while striking out four over six innings in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Mariners.Morton meandered threw his six innings, allowing leadoff batters to reach base four times. Three double-plays minimized potential damage, but the Mariners were able to strike for three runs in the fourth inning and that was enough. Houston's offense continued its slump, managing just three hits off the light-tossing Wade LeBlanc. Morton will return to the bump Friday on the road against the Athletics.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Throws seven strong innings in no-decision

      Charlie Morton allowed one run on three hits and three walks while striking out eight over seven innings in Monday's 3-1 win over the Giants.Morton did his part, quelling the Giants' bats, but got little support from his teammates, who placed one man in scoring position while he was in the game. He was looking at a loss before Marwin Gonzalez's three-run home run in the ninth gave Houston the win. This was Morton's third straight quality start, a run in which his ERA is 1.89 with 21 strikeouts over 19 innings. He's next scheduled to take the mound Friday at home against Seattle.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Stops Astros' slide

      Charlie Morton (12-2) allowed two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out eight over six innings in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Seattle.Morton received a level of support that had been missing during the team's five-game losing streak, which was snapped Tuesday. Manager A.J. Hinch shuffled a lineup that had hit .190 since the All-Star break and got the desired results. The Houston Astros amassed 15 hits, some timely enough to allow Morton to pitch with a lead and post his 12th win of the season. He's next scheduled to pitch Monday on the road against the Giants.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Allows just one in no-decision

      Charlie Morton did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's loss, allowing one run on four hits and four walks while striking out five over six innings against the Rockies.Morton allowed a solo shot in the second inning and struggled some with command in this one. He threw only 58 of 102 pitches for strikes en route to issuing four free passes and hitting a batter, but still left in line for the win when he turned it over to the bullpen. The 34-year-old now owns a sterling 2.89 ERA and 11.5 K/9 and will take on the Mariners on Tuesday next time out.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Undone by shaky fifth inning

      Charlie Morton allowed three earned runs over 4.1 innings in a no-decision Thursday against the A's. He notched five strikeouts but allowed six hits and two walks.It was a laborious 4.1 innings for Morton, who threw 104 pitches in that span with just 65 of them going for strikes. Morton made it through the first four innings mostly unscathed with just two hits allowed, but the wheels came off in the fifth when he loaded the bases to start the inning and allowed a two-run double to Nick Martini. His swing-and-miss stuff was still on display as he induced 11 whiffs in his outing Thursday, but this marks two shaky starts in a row for Morton. He'll make his next start after the All-Star break.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Earns win despite surrendering five runs

      Charlie Morton (11-2) allowed five earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out eight across 5.2 innings to earn the win Saturday against the White Sox.Morton was pitching well through five innings but loaded the bases in the sixth inning, leading to four runs scoring in the frame. More specifically, the trouble began when Morton worked through the White Sox order for the third time. However, that has not been a consistent problem for him this season as he has surrendered a .374 slugging percentage to hitters the third time he faces them in a game. Despite the subpar outing, Morton still has a 2.83 ERA for the season, with Saturday's start being the first time he has surrendered more than three earned runs in a start since June 3.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Takes loss despite solid outing

      Charlie Morton (10-2) surrendered two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out 11 across 6.2 innings as he was handed the loss Sunday against Tampa Bay.Morton cruised through six scoreless innings, but he gave up a two-RBI single to Matt Duffy in the bottom of the seventh, which gave the Rays a 2-1 lead. Morton certainly deserved a better fate after working into the seventh with just two runs allowed. Prior to Sunday's outing, he hadn't allowed a run over his last two starts (13 innings) and had 17 strikeouts over that span. Morton will look to continue his recent success in his next start Saturday against the White Sox.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Gives up unearned run in win

      Charlie Morton (9-1) allowed just one unearned run on two hits and four walks with four strikeouts through six innings in a win Wednesday over the Houston Astros.Morton continues to succeed despite aberrant control. This marks the fifth time Morton has walked at least four batters and the second time he has managed to still complete a quality start despite the free passes. Morton was still nasty, as he induced 15 swinging strikes, and the Rays were never able to mount a serious rally. Morton failed to complete a quality start in his first two starts in May, but he looks to be back on track. He'll get a test against another American League East foe Tuesday against Toronto.
