    No one really knows. There are conflicting claims (theories, but really hypotheses) about what a stitch is an what causes it.

    Most people who run in the morning run before breakfast. It could be your evening stitch is related to having food in your gut. Arrange for more time between your evening run and prior food consumption.

    Evening outdoor temperatures are usually warmer than morning. Your evening stitch could be related to temperature.

    It's possible you are trying to run faster in the evening, even if that is not your intent.
