Burnes allowed one run on two hits and three walks over 3.1 innings in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Cubs. He had six strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The young right-hander pitched fairly well Saturday, but he struggled a bit with his control as he needed 75 pitches to record 10 outs. Burnes figures to receive a longer leash as he continues to get stretched, but he'll need to bring down the walk total to have a real chance of pitching later into games. The 25-year-old is next scheduled to take the mound Friday versus the Cardinals.
