With his specialty sinker, Morton is not worried about the long-ball dangers of pitching in Coors Field, where he is 1-0. He has seven ultra quality starts (seven-plus innings, two earned runs or fewer), winning only two of them.

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.
