A.J. Burnett had another bad start, and for a second straight game the Yankees had a starting pitcher unable to pitch out of the fourth inning. Burnett hasn’t won since July 28, and this time he allowed all nine runs in a 9-4 loss to the White Sox. Sergio Mitre pitched well in relief, but the Yankees couldn’t make up for Burnett’s struggles and couldn’t pick up a game on the Rays in the division standings.
