A.J. Burnett gave up four runs (three earned) in 6 2/3 innings in a loss to the Nationals on Friday.
Burnett gave up a career-high 14 hits, so he was fortunate that things weren't much worse. According to Andrew Simon of, he's the first pitcher since Scott Baker on August 21, 2007 to give up at least 14 hits and no more than three earned runs in a game. The veteran right-hander fanned seven and walked one in the loss, with his ERA jumping from 1.89 to 2.05 in the process. He'll look for better results next week against the Reds. Jun 19 - 9:55 PM
