Hickory lost 9-1 in Bryan Morris' debut in the Pirates system, but don't be fooled by the score. Morris pitched 5 shutout innings, allowing 2 hits (although he walked 4). He turns the game over to the bullpen, who promptly implodes resulting in the loss.

At first I was leery about only 5 innings, thinking maybe he got hurt, but I looked at his game log and he doesn't go long in games. Do you think they just keep him on a low pitch count or what?

My understanding is that all pitchers in the system are on pitch counts.

Correct. The fact that he walked 4 means that he burned through a lot of pitches to get through his five innings.
