Brandon Morrow has rough 5th inning in Blue Jays' 10-5 loss to Braves' split squad

Brandon Morrow allowed four of his five runs in the fifth inning Saturday of the Toronto Blue Jays' 10-5 loss to an Atlanta Braves' spilt squad.

Morrow gave up eight hits in 5 1-3 innings and has allowed 15 runs over 15 innings in five starts.

Reed Johnson had a two-run single, the Braves' fourth consecutive hit off Morrow with two outs in the fifth, that pulled Atlanta to 4-3. The tying run scored on Morrow's wild pitch, and Justin Upton's run-scoring infield single put Atlanta ahead.

Minor league callup Edward Salcedo hit an eighth-inning solo homer and had a three-run drive in the ninth for the Braves.

Rajai Davis, Melky Cabrera and J.P. Arencibia hit solo homers off Sean Gilmartin, who gave up five runs and 10 hits in five innings.
