Morton rubs salt in it

Mobile catcher Colt Morton had five RBIs on Friday in the BayBears' 13-2 pasting of the Biscuits.

Morton hit a two-run double and a three-run home run to tie his career high for RBIs. He was promoted to the BayBears a month ago.

On July 5, 2003, in Morton's sixth professional game, he knocked in five runs for Eugene of the short-season Northwest League. He hit two home runs that day against Everett.

Mobile's 13 runs were the most surrendered by the Biscuits this year. The BayBears' 15-hit shelling tied Montgomery's worst night, joining Carolina (July 14), Mobile (June 17) and West Tenn (May 12).
