Bryan Morris allowed five earned runs out of the bullpen while only recording two outs in the Giants' 12-11 loss to the Braves on Thursday. One day later, the Giants designated Morris for assignment.
In a corresponding move, the Giants recalled lefty reliever Steven Okert from Triple-A Sacramento.
Morris went 2-0 with a 6.43 ERA in 20 games out of the bullpen for the Giants this season.
Okert has moved up and down from Sacramento and San Francisco this year. With the Giants, he is 1-0 with a 6.23 ERA in 19 appearances.
Down in the minors, Okert owns a 1-0 record with a 2.25 ERA in 11 games while recording four saves.
It's win or go home with a chance to play the Red Sox in the World Series.
After the Brewers stayed alive in the NLCS with a Game 6 win, it's on to Game 7 for Milwaukee and the Dodgers. To advance to the World Series, Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler will square off with veteran Jhoulys Chacin.

Julian Edelman has become a star wide receiver for the New England Patriots, but he will always stay true to his Bay Area roots.
Edelman has naturally become a Boston Red Sox fan and will be cheering for them in the World Series. He also has a dream scenario for this year's Fall Classic.
"I hate the Dodgers," Edelman said to reporters on Friday. "I hate the Dodgers. I mean, I'm a San Francisco guy. It's like Boston-New York diet over there. I hope they do make it and the Sox pound 'em."
The Giants' season may be over, but that doesn't mean their rivalry with the Dodgers is. The team was big fans of Edelman's comments and even liked the video on Twitter.
Edelman grew up in Redwood City and starred as a quarterback at Woodside High School. After high school, he played one year at the College of San Mateo where he threw for 1,312 yards and 14 touchdowns through the air while rushing for a school record 1,253 yards and 17 touchdowns.
The Dodgers play the Brewers in Game 7 of the NLCS Saturday night at 5 p.m. PT looking to face the Red Sox in the World Series.
