Astros' Morton stays unbeaten with 8-2 win over Indians

Charlie Morton remained unbeaten this season — and knew where to place the credit for his latest victory.

Morton (7-0) pitched six solid innings, Alex Bregman and Jake Marisnick hit three-run homers and the Houston Astros defeated the Cleveland Indians 8-2.

"I felt like I was along for the ride," Morton said. "It was just one of those days for me. They picked me up all night."

The right-hander allowed two runs and five hits while extending his career-best winning streak to 10 games. Morton, who moved into a tie for the AL lead in wins, hasn't lost since Sept. 9, 2017 against Oakland. He walked three and struck out five.
