Pirates SP A.J. Burnett goes seven solid innings in win over Mets
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pirates right-hander A.J. Burnett was dominant on Saturday in a win against the Mets. Burnett went seven innings, allowing just one run on five hits. He did not issue a walk and struck out a season-high 10 batters on the afternoon. He threw 96 pitches, 60 of them going for strikes.

Burnett (4-1) gave up his only run on the day in the fourth inning on a run-scoring fielder's choice by Daniel Murphy. Other than that, he never really got into any trouble, as he allowed just one other runner to get to third base all day. 

“He’s pitching as well as I’ve seen him pitch,” manager Clint Hurdle said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “He’s doing his job."

Burnett has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his first nine starts this season, and will take a nice 1.37 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Thursday in San Diego.

Pirates starting pitcher A.J. Burnett throws seven shutout IP for win
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Pirates starting pitcher A.J. Burnett (3-1) threw seven shutout innings Sunday, scattering three hits, fanning seven and walking five to earn the win over the Cubs.

Burnett tossed 103 pitches and lowered his ERA to 1.38 in the outing.

"I do believe it's the best delivery of his career, at least since we've seen him," Hurdle said to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "It's just connected. He's holding his back side. He's getting out with perfect extension … with the angle he wants. Everything is coming out of the same arm slot."

Burnett has not allowed more than two runs in any of his eight starts this season, becoming the first Pirates starter since 1900 to do so.

Burnett returns to the mound for his next start Sunday, May 24, against the Mets.

Pirates SP A.J. Burnett records 2,400 strikeout of career Thursday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett struck out four batters to record his 2,400 career strikeout during Thursday's 7-2 win over the Reds.

Burnett recorded the historic strikeout when he struck out Anthony DeSclafani in the third inning. He became the 41st pitcher in MLB history to accomplish the feat.

"Twenty-five hundred would be a good milestone; 2,400 is just on the way there," Burnett said, per MLB.com.

Burnett surrendered two runs on seven hits over seven innings of work during the start. He received his first win of the season for his effort and his ERA now stands at 1.66. Burnett has not allowed more than two runs in any of his six starts this season.

His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday at Philadelphia.

Pirates SP A.J. Burnett strikes out seven during Friday's game
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett tossed six shutout innings while striking out seven batters during Friday's 2-1 loss to the Cardinals.

Despite not allowing a run, Burnett received a no-decision for his effort after he exited with a one-run lead in the sixth inning. Pitcher Arquimedes Caminero relieved Burnett in the seventh and surrendered the game-tying run. Burnett also walked three batters and his ERA now stands at 1.45.

Despite not allowing more than two runs in any of his five starts this season, Burnett (0-1) has yet to record his first win of the season. He has allowed a total of five runs over his five starts this season.

His next expected start is scheduled for Thursday against the Reds.
