PITTSBURGH -- After recording only two outs in a disastrous outing last time out, Pirates right-hander Charlie Morton did his best to eat up innings in the Pirates' 8-4 win Saturday at PNC Park. But he saved a special bite for Deolis Guerra.
Morton bounced back from his two-out, nine-run performance against the Nationals as he held the Braves to four runs over six innings. He overcame a 15-minute delay to start the game and a 31-minute rain delay in the fifth inning. Morton let eight batters reach in his first 2 1/3 innings, then retired 11 straight.
