Morton's return to action went about as well as the Pirates could have hoped for, as he induced 16 groundouts and held the Marlins to two runs over seven innings Monday. He is 2-0 with a 2.61 ERA in two starts at Petco Park.

Ross allowed a season-high 10 hits his last time out, vs. the Angels, but just one walk. It's the first time this season he's walked one batter or fewer in a game. That's a good sign. Last season, Ross had one or fewer walked in 11 starts.

Career stats

Shields has been a pillar of consistency for the Padres, allowing three or fewer runs in nine of his 11 starts. The curveball continues to be a big weapon for him and a reason why he's induced the most swing-and-misses in the NL this season.
