Following another crapping of the bed courtesy of CMW, AJ Burnett puts a stop to a two game losing streak for the second consecutive start.
Burnett dominated the defending AL Champion Ex-Rays over eight strong innings, showcasing no-hit stuff throughout.
Though he didn't give up a hit until the seventh inning, Burnett showed his value while pitching a three-up, three-down inning in the eighth. After struggling in the seventh and letting up two runs, AJ came back with a much-needed shutdown inning. That type of swing-and-miss stuff is special to witness, and I look forward to seeing it over the 20-25 healthy starts that Burnett will provide this year.
