Billy Burns went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, two runs scored, and two stolen bases Thursday against the Tigers.
After drawing a walk in the third inning, Burns stole second and third base before eventually being brought home on a single by Josh Reddick. The speedster lost some playing time to Coco Crisp in the early part of the season, but he has been in the lineup pretty regularly of late. Burns has shown an elite contact rate so far, striking out just five times in 18 games, but it has led to a modest .268/.316/.366 batting line and just one RBI. On the bright side, he has six steals.
