Analysis: Morton (1-1) worked in and out of trouble over five innings, allowing five hits and two walks with three strikeouts. He had runners on in every inning, including stranding the bases loaded in the second when he got Ben Revere to fly out. Morton has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his three starts this season.

Analysis: This is basically what Morton is: OK for a few innings before unraveling in one big inning (i.e., Monday's three-run fifth). Don't expect anything more.
