ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Charlie Morton's luck finally ran out.
He suffered his first loss in 22 starts on Saturday when the Angels hit three homers in a 5-3 victory over Tampa Bay. It was his first loss since Aug. 11, when he pitched for the Houston Astros.
"I've pitched poorly enough to lose this year. I just didn't because our guys put up a bunch of runs and got me off the hook," said Morton (8-1). "You can lose giving up a run or two. I've just been really fortunate to be on a really good team, really good defense, really good offense."
