However, Adam Morgan has been one of their worst pitchers.
In his last outing, he gave up just 2 in 6 innings against the Braves. In the outing before that, he gave up 7 in 3.2 innings against the Reds.
He didn’t pitch his first game until April 29 and has done decent besides that 7 run game.

Lester has contributed to this excellence with a 2.60 era.
