Franklin Morales Credits Improved Curveball With Continued Success in Starting Rotation (Video)

Franklin Morales likely wanted nothing more than to forget the nightmare of an outing against the Yankees just before the All-Star break.

With his performance on Friday night, the Red Sox pitcher did just that. Hurling five shutout innings, the lefty struck out five and allowed only two hits with three walks in Boston's 3-1 victory over the Rays.

He credited that success to his curveball when speaking with reporters after the game.
