Brandon Morrow brought his ‘A’ game on Wednesday.

For the most part, the Houston Astros were overmatched.

End of story.

It was the second start of the season for Morrow, his first against the Tampa Bay Rays last week was a bit on the dull side as he allowed four runs on seven hits over five innings. Pedestrian for Morrow.

This night, though, Morrow was first class through five of his six innings in pitching the Blue Jays to a 7-3 victory and marking the club's first series triumph of the young season. They go for the sweep Thursday night with R.A. Dickey on the mound.

In the first inning, Morrow struck out the side on 15 pitches, topping out a few times at 97 mph. That’s bringing it.
