Franklin Morales surrenders four runs in win vs. Diamondbacks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Rockies pitcher Franklin Morales gave up four earned runs on seven hits and two walks in five innings while striking out two Saturday, but he still came away with the win in his team's 8-5 victory over the Diamondbacks Monday.

The Rockies gave Morales another lead in the fourth, but he gave it right back in the bottom of the fifth. After the offense scored three more in the sixth, they wisely prevented Morales from doing more damage by removing him from the game. He owns a 4.40 ERA and 23:12 K:BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings going into Saturday's home matchup with the Mets.
