Hard-luck pitcher Nick Morton has done it again. Morton pitched 5 2/3 innings against Wichita yesterday, and was actually pitching quite well (for him). That was until the sixth inning when Morton allowed a single, a SB 2B and the dreaded SB 3B. After the following HR, Morton's night was over. When the inning began, Morton had a 4-3 lead. By the end of the inning, the Sluts were losing 6-4.
Morton's record now stands at a deplorable 0-17. It is believed that this mediocre pitcher could be the first ever Happy Jack ML'er to go 0-for the season with at least 200 innings pitched. The once-thought-of-as-impossible 0-20 is within reach. Should Morton accomplish such a feat, his name will surely be recognized in Happy Jack for years to come. Look for the Chris Berman special later this year.
