Well that went about as horribly as I thought it would.
6 consecutive XBH allowed in a 6-run 2nd inning, 9 ER on 9 H (8 XBH) over 5 innings pitched overall, and a curveball that was only located either right over the heart of the plate or against the backstop. Yep, that's pretty much par for the course for an A.J. Burnett outing in August.
On the positive side, I do feel a little good about having my lack of faith rewarded. That's always a plus, so thanks, A.J.
