Home Game Recaps Morton spins gem, but Bucs fall below .500

Morton spins gem, but Bucs fall below .500

Final: Cubs 1, Pirates 0

WP: Matt Garza (5-8)
LP: Chris Resop (3-3)
SV: Carlos Marmol (22)

Charlie Morton did what the Pirates needed him to do. Be a stopper. However, the Pirates’ bats were unable to muster up any type of support. And last time I checked, it is literally impossible to win if you do not score a run.

Morton did not give up a run over 7 shutout innings where he struck out 7 and walked 2. Chris Resop would make one mistake pitch to Starlin Castro and that would be the game as Castro led off the 8th inning with a home run that would prove to be enough.

The Bucs would get just 4 hits in this game, 2 from Pedro Alvarez.

The loss means the Pirates are below .500 for the first time in a while and it is getting to the point where they really need to right the ship before things get too out of control.
