Do you want the good news or the bad news?

The good?

OK, Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow didn’t allow a hit.

The bad?

Morrow lasted just 2.2 innings, in which time he allowed four runs thanks to a career-high eight walks in what would wind up a 7-6 win by the Red Sox. A fluid strike zone by home plate ump Jeff Kellogg didn’t help but still...

In a continuation of some dreadful pitching performances of late, Morrow came up with a stinker after his teammates had opened a 3-0 lead against Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz.
