A.J. Burnett allowed three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out five over five innings in Tuesday's win over the Marlins.
Burnett had a respectable showing on Tuesday night, but reached 96 pitches by the end of the fifth inning, forcing the Phillies to turn to the bullpen form that point on. He is now 3-3 with a 3.32 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through his first 10 starts, but will need to work on his free passes (30 BB) in order to pitch deeper into games. The Phillies hurler will look for win No. 4 when he takes on the Dodgers on Sunday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
