Charlie Morton allowed no runs, one hit and a walk in the Grapefruit League opener for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Video: Charlie Morton Effective Against Tampa Bay Rays

We posted some videos from Charlie Morton’s performance against the Tampa Bay Rays in Port Charlotte.

Morton gave up a leadoff walk to Rays catcher John Jaso and then got Johnny Damon on a double play ball. He went inside against Evan Longoria before he got the mullet rocker to ground out to Pedro Alvarez.

In the second inning, Morton gave up a soft hit to Manny Ramirez before getting another double play ball.  The quick turns by the infield were truly the best friend for Morton yesterday. 

The sun played havoc with video all day, but we thought we would put it up anyway for you.
