Morrow shuts down Bucs

Published on June 29, 2011 by in Game Recaps

Final: Blue Jays 2, Pirates 1

WP: Brandon Morrow (4-4)
LP: Paul Maholm (4-9)
SV: Frank Francisco (9)

As has been the case all year, Paul Maholm pitched well, but the offense did not reward him for it. Maholm gave up just 2 runs over 7 innings of work to lower his season ERA to 3.17, however he was tagged with his 9th loss of the year.

Brandon Morrow was even better than Maholm, though, as he racked up 10 strikeouts over 7 innings. The Pirates’ lone run was scored when Ronny Cedeno singled in Lyle Overbay in the 5th inning. Cedeno, in fact had half the teams’ hits today with 2.

It simply wasn’t a very pretty game as the Pirates ran into 2 outs on the basepaths. One of which, in the 5th inning proved to be pretty costly and helped aid Morrow avoid a big inning.

The Bucs will look to forget about this one and can still take the series tomorrow as Jeff Karstens takes the hill against Brett Cecil.
