A.J. Burnett struggled for a second straight start in Saturday's loss to the Nationals, allowing five runs on 11 hits over 5 2/3 innings.
Burnett's now surrendered 11 runs in his last 11 2/3 innings. On Saturday, the Nationals slowly bled him to death, scoring a run in the second, two in the fourth and one in each of the next two innings. The veteran right-hander did strike out eight, but that does little to overshadow what was a poor start. Despite the recent rough stretch, Burnett is the current owner of a 2.68 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 110/34 K/BB ratio over 131 1/3 innings. He'll match up with the Reds on the road in his next scheduled start as he tries to keep from sliding further. Jul 25 - 11:22 PM
