A.J. Burnett allowed three runs on eight hits with four strikeouts over eight innings in the loss to the Cubs on Sunday.

Burnett fell to 4-6 in 15 starts this season after Sunday's loss, his third to just one win over his last five starts. Burnett's strikeout rate continues to drop as he is striking out around just seven batters per nine innings on the season, which is his lowest mark since back in 2001. Burnett has just 10 punch outs over his last three starts (21.1 IP), one less than he struck out against the Mets four starts ago. The 37-year old Burnett will face the Cardinals, on the road, in his next start on Friday.
