Burnett reaches new low in Yankees loss

Last season was considered a low point for A.J. Burnett, but he might be sinking lower. After tonight’s 9-4 debacle in Minnesota, Burnett is 9-10 with a 4.96 ERA. On this date last season, he was 9-11 with a 4.80. Facing a lineup with six hitters batting below .250 — and only one hitter with double digit home runs — Burnett lasted only an inning and two-thirds. He was charged with seven runs on five hits, three walks and two wild pitches. Television cameras seemed to catch him cursing at Joe Girardi as he was taken out of the game. The Yankees lineup scored only once against Twins starter Francisco Liriano, and they failed to gain a game on Boston, which also lost.
