Charlie Morton (RHP) (0-0, -.– ERA, 0 K) @ Jair Jurrjens (RHP) (5-3, 2.84 ERA, 48 K)

7:00 P.M. EST @ Turner Field

Hello, Charlie Morton. Welcome to Pittsburgh!! The newly acquired pitcher is called up to the majors to face his old team. How can’t you be excited about the bottom of the first inning when Morton pitches to McLouth?

Tom Gorzelanny was sent back to AAA Indianapolis.

Post Game Update

Charlie Morton started, but he didn’t last long. After 13 pitches, he left the game due to an injured left hamstring. Jeff Karstens resumed and had a nice outing. Morton is scheduled to go again next Tuesday.

In small-ball fashion, the Pirates put 4 runs togheter, and it was enough to take home the 4-3 victory. The Pirates haven’t homered in their last 309 plate appearances. It goes back to Jaramillo’s first career home run. That’s not good.
