Charlie Morton continued his stellar MLB season as the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Oakland Athletics 6-2.

The 35-year-old right-hander pitched seven scoreless innings and allowed just two hits at Tropicana Field on Monday.

Morton – who lowered his ERA to 2.10 for the season – struck out seven and walked two while throwing 94 pitches against the Athletics.

He also tossed seven shut-out innings in his last start against the Detroit Tigers on June 5.

"I felt alright. They hit a few balls real hard. Got some great plays behind us," Morton told reporters after the game. "Guys swung the bats there. Another awesome team win."

Brandon Lowe, Ji-Man Choi and Kevin Kiermaier all finished with two RBIs for Tampa Bay in the victory.

The Rays improved to 41-24 with the win while the Athletics fell to 33-34.
