Verdict

He also has held the current members of the Braves team to a .197 batting average in his career.

Morton, who has allowed seven runs in his past two starts at Truist Field, has been average at best at home this year (4.00 ERA). Morton also only has had mediocre success against the Phillies this year, allowing 12 runs over four games although only six of those runs were earned.
