The Atlanta Braves won their sixth consecutive series on Tuesday night after defeating the Colorado Rockies 3-1. Charlie Morton had a night to remember, earning his 14th win. He tossed six frames of one-run ball and struck out eight. He surrendered just two bases on balls. Morton has given up just one run in his last 24 innings.
“He has a wicked curveball and the fastball gets up there pretty quick on you,” Michael Harris II said of Morton. “He is phenomenal,” he added. “I have fun playing behind him.”
The Braves offense racked up fifteen hits but just three crossed the plate. Marcell Ozuna and Sean Murphy are responsible for the number in the run column.
The Braves go for the sweep at Coors Field tonight at 8:40 ET.
