A.J. Burnett allowed two runs, three hits, including a home run, and two walks with three strikeouts over 7.1 innings in the win over the Padres Tuesday.
Wow A.J. Burnett actually held an opponent to two or fewer runs. What gives? Did the Phillies host an exhibition game against the school of the blind? Oh wait, never mind, they played the Padres, that explains how he was able to achieve this feat for the first time in seven starts. Burnett will look to win back-to-back starts for just the second time this season when he takes the mound on Sunday, in another home start, this time against the Cubs.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
