Pirates SP A.J. Burnett goes seven innings in win over Tigers
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Pirates starting pitcher A.J. Burnett had amazing stuff on Wednesday against the Tigers.

Burnett tossed seven innings, allowed seven hits and just two earned runs before being pulled from the game. He picked up his seventh win of the season in a game where he was never truly in trouble at any point -- he gave up runs off a single and infield groundout.

The run support in the 9-3 win helped Burnett keep his compusure and settle into another good performance.

"The boys came out swinging," Burnett said, per MLB.com. "It was good to see Pedro get one and for Walker to have the day he had (4-for-6). Anytime they come out swinging like that, man, it helps out."

Burnett (7-3) has a 2.05 ERA with 90 strikeouts and 27 walks in 105 1/3 innings this season.
