    Braves' Charlie Morton: Fans eight in no-decision

    Charlie Morton allowed three runs on five hits and two walks over six innings Thursday against Arizona. He also had eight strikeouts but did not factor in the decision.The 37-year-old limited the Diamondbacks to a single run through six innings but finally ran into trouble in the seventh, allowing consecutive base hits to open the frame before reliever Jacob Webb served up a three-run homer to Carson Kelly. Still, the end result was Morton's fourth quality start in his last five outings, and his best strikeout total in four September appearances. Morton, who is 13-6 with a 3.53 ERA and 203 strikeouts in 176 innings this season, is slated to face Philadelphia at home next Wednesday.

    Braves' Charlie Morton: Strikes out nine in loss

    Charlie Morton (12-5) allowed four runs on six hits with nine strikeouts through five innings, taking the loss in Tuesday's 5-4 defeat to the Yankees.The strikeouts keep piling up for Morton, but this wasn't one of his masterful outings. Entering play, the 37-year-old hadn't given up a homer since Aug. 1. That streak ended when Giancarlo Stanton went yard in the second, followed by DJ LeMahieu in the fifth. Morton did still find the strike zone with over 70 percent of his pitches, but the four runs allowed won't be doing his ERA any favors nor will his next assignment, as it will likely come against the Dodgers early next week.

    Braves' Charlie Morton: Glides to 12th win

    Charlie Morton improved to 12-4 after limiting the Marlins to two runs while striking out nine over six innings Wednesday in Atlanta's 11-9 victory. He scattered three hits and a walk in the 89-pitch start.The final outcome doesn't properly illustrate how dominant Morton was in one of his better outings of the season. He held the Marlins hitless through 4.1 innings, and he probably could have worked into the seventh if Atlanta didn't already hold a commanding 7-2 lead at the time of his departure. After a rocky start to the season, Morton has settled in nicely as Atlanta's ace since about mid-June. Over his last 12 starts, Morton has gone 7-1 with a 2.55 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 10.8 K/9.

He then allowed a sacrifice fly before coaxing a double play to end the inning. The right-hander was forced to settle for a loss and a no-decision in his last two starts, but across his first three outings in August, Morton has posted a 2.00 ERA and 0.89 WHIP in 18 innings. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Miami on Wednesday.

    Braves' Charlie Morton: Dominates but takes no-decision

    Charlie Morton did not factor in the decision against Washington on Saturday despite pitching six scoreless innings during which he gave up three hits and two walks while striking out seven.The Nationals struggled to figure out Morton throughout his six frames, as they managed only three hits against him. When the right-hander got himself in trouble by allowing two walks and a single in the sixth, he responded by striking out the side to keep Washington off the scoreboard. The dominant outing put Morton in line for his 11th win of the season, but typically steady closer Will Smith couldn't shut the door in the ninth. Morton continues to perform well in his age-37 campaign, posting a 3.52 ERA and 148:44 K:BB across 128 innings. His next start will likely come in a rematch versus the Nationals next Friday.
