In his last start, Morales had his longest outing for the Rox since rejoining the rotation. He lasted six frames, surrendering four runs (three earned) to the Nats. It could have been a lot worse, considering he permitted nine hits and four walks.

Morton's mistakes in his last go were a hanging curveball and a sinker that never sunk. Ernesto Frieri didn't do him any favors when he took over, but Morton looked like the same pitcher who had a 2.73 ERA over his last five starts.
