Morton is winless in his past five starts. Solving his first-inning troubles would help snap that streak: In his 12 starts, he has allowed 16 runs (15 earned) in the first. Undefeated in past six GABP starts (3-0, 2.70 ERA).

Lorenzen has to be happy to flip the calendar to August after a terrible stretch in July. The rookie righty went 0-4 with an 8.61 ERA in five starts during July. He went six innings just once during that stretch.
