A.J. Burnett coughed up six runs (four earned) on 11 hits and one walk while striking out three batters over seven innings in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.
Burnett has been cold of late, having gone 1-3 over his last four trips to the mound. Despite his recent struggles, he still owns a 3.51 ERA and 1.43 WHIP but has had his fair share of problems in the walk department (31 BB through 66.2 IP). If he doesn't figure out his command issues, more outings like this are in his future. Burnett will look to get back on track when he takes on the Mets on Friday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
