Saturday Stat Sheet 8/16/14

- Another rough outing for Charlie Morton last night, surrendering five runs in three innings (his shortest outing of the year) … He’s now allowed 4+ runs in five of his last seven starts, posting a 6.00 ERA and .300 opponent batting average in that span.

- In his return to the starting lineup as a third baseman, Pedro Alvarez went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI … his first multi-hit game since June 29th.

- Starling Marte crushed his sixth homer of the year on Friday; he’s looked good since returning from the DL, hitting .333 with a .986 OPS in 11 games. He’ll hit cleanup for the first time in his career on Saturday.

- Gerrit Cole made another rehab start with the Indy Indians last night — sounds like it was his last — and he dominated again: 0 runs over 7 innings, his second scoreless outing of the week.

- Jeff Locke gets the ball tonight … He’s already having a forgettable second half: 6.00 ERA, .328/.388/.541 opponent slash line in five starts.

- The difference between the Bucs’ home & road winning percentage is one of the largest in MLB:

    The Pirates have a chance at the playoffs, but really need to improve their pitching if they are going to make it.
