News: Charlie Morton improved to 1-1, allowing two hits and one walk over 5.0 scoreless innings, as the Houston Astros defeated the New York Yankees 4-0 on Saturday. Morton struck out five, ending the game with a 7.27 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the season.
Impact: The big inning tends to plague Morton, but it never happened in this one. His sinker was sharp and he showed A.J. Hinch that he can hopefully pitch effectively in the World Series.
