Game 24: Phillies 8 Pirates 4

You know the script to this one: Matt Morris got pounded early and the team couldn't come back. He gave up 5 runs in the first inning and even though only two of them were earned, it was pretty obvious that he didn't have much going for him from the get-go tonight. Watching him pitch tonight was exactly what it's been all year: sad. I don't really have much else to say, except that all claims that Bixler was settling in (my own included, of course) appear to be quite premature. It appears that Morris's Pirate career is over and I've actually got a lot more to say about that, but I'm saving that for it's own post to go up either later tonight or sometime tomorrow.
