Charlie Morton allowed three runs (two earned) while walking one and striking out 11 in the loss to the Rays on Wednesday.

The 11 strikeouts are a career-high for Morton who has seen a spike in K-rate this month courtesy, most of all, due to an increase in swings and misses with his curveball followed by an even more recent success rate with his splitter. Morton has struck out six-plus in each of his five starts this month after striking out more than five just twice, and no more than six, over the first two months of the season (11 starts). Morton will look to put an end to his two-game losing streak in his next start at home Wednesday against the DBacks.
