A.J. Burnett allowed one earned run on three hits while walking one and striking out 12 in the Phillies 3-2 win against the Nationals on Monday.

It was Burnett's best outing in more than a month, which is significant because AJ cleared waivers earlier month and should he show signs of life, could be moved to a contender for the stretch run. It's been a poor season for the veteran righty, who sports a 4.30 ERA and 1.41 WHIP, his worst numbers since moving to the National League in 2012. He's expecting to retire at the end of the season.
