Career stats

Morton's mistakes in his last go were a hanging curveball and a sinker that never sunk. Ernesto Frieri didn't do him any favors when he took over, but Morton looked like the same pitcher who had a 2.73 ERA over his last five starts.

The theory that Locke is a more confident pitcher not shaken by a bad outing will be tested as he comes off having allowed 10 hits in his last start, including three homers -- matching the total he had given up in his first eight starts.

Volquez labored the last time out -- managing only 4 1/3 innings out of 99 pitches, his briefest start of the season. He has a losing career record against the NL West (11-18), but has held his own against the D-backs (3.86 ERA in nine starts).

Nuno deserved a better fate his last time out against the Phillies. He allowed four runs (two earned) in 6 2/3 innings. He threw a career-high 117 pitches. Nuno was victimized by some poor defense in the game.

The Vanimal was spectacular in twirling his first career shutout Monday in San Francisco, but that was only the best of his six quality starts -- out of the seven he has made. He's shown exceptional control, averaging a walk per start.

Unlike the guy who struggled before, Liriano has been his old self since recovering from a strained left oblique. He has allowed two earned runs in his last 21 innings, with 26 strikeouts in them. His opponents' average is down to .231.
