2014 Bowman Chrome #111 A.J. Burnett

Pirates 7, Phillies 2
Game 34 - Tuesday Night, May 12th in Philadelphia
Record - 11-23, 5th Place, 9 1/2 games behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  A.J. Burnett returned to Philadelphia and stymied his former team as the Pirates easily handled the Phillies, 7-2.

What It Means:  The Phils have lost four in a row and are a season high 9 1/2 games behind the first place Mets.

What Happened:  Burnett allowed just two runs (one earned) on six hits in his seven innings of work.  Through seven starts this season, Burnett is now 2-1 with a 1.60 ERA.  Sean O'Sullivan and Luis Garcia bore the brunt of the damage, allowing a combined seven runs on seven hits over six innings.

Featured Card:  If I'm not mistaken, this is Burnett's final Phillies card (as an active player), released in October 2014 right before Burnett returned to Pittsburgh as a free agent.
