A.J. Burnett struggled versus his old team on Thursday allowing seven runs (six earned) on nine hits, including three home runs, and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings to take the loss.

After surrendering only three earned runs over his last three starts, Burnett hard hit hard matching up against his former team, allowing six runs on a season-high nine hits, three of which were home runs. He is now 2-2 with a 2.90 ERA and 1.29 WHIP through eight starts while holding down a unimpressive 39:21 K:BB ratio. Although his strikeouts are down over two per nine innings from last season (7.07 K/9), the fact he has been able to limit his free passes over his last five starts (7 BB) is a strong indication that an uptick in performance should be on the way in the near future. Burnett will look to get back on track when he takes on the Angels on Wednesday.
