A.J. Burnett threw eight shutout innings against the Giants on Wednesday. He allowed four hits and four walks with six strikeouts.

This was a great bounce back game for Burnett who put his last start ( 5 IP, 6 ER) behind him and threw his eighth quality start in his last nine outings. His command was surprisingly spotty at times though, as he threw a season-high 131 pitches (76 strikes) and had the four walks, but managed to work his way out of a couple of jams to maintain the shutout performance thanks to 11 ground ball outs. While his performance recently has been outstanding, remember the early-season Burnett and understand that he is very likely to be traded and could end up back int he AL.
