A.J. Burnett tossed eight scoreless innings and allowed just five hits with no walks and eight strikeouts to beat the Diamondbacks 2-0 on Sunday.
With this outing, Burnett has now turned in three-straight quality starts and allowed just two runs over his last 21.2 innings for a 0.83 ERA and a 18:3 K:BB. He's going deeper into games and maintaining strong command throughout each outing. He'll face the Nationals next week, a team against whom Burnett has a 1.64 ERA over his last three starts.

Henry Walker scored 12 points, grabbed nine rebounds, recorded five assists, and four steals in the Heat 99-86 loss to the Hawks on Friday night.
The artist formerly known as “Bill Walker” had one of his better performances of the season, as he stuffed the stat sheet in every conceivable fashion on Friday night. He scored 12 points, grabbed nine boards, recorded five assists, and four steals, all in the name of diversifying his efforts and tying to help the Heat get into the win column. Unfortunately the Hawks proved to be too much for Miami, as they rolled them 99-86. Only consider Walker in daily leagues, were he can be bought on the cheap. Analysis: Dom Murtha
