From David:

-P- A.J. Burnett got hit hard tonight in Indy. 4IP, 7H, 5ER, 4BB, 0K, 2HR, 81-52. Obviously, the results weren't there, but apparently Burnett was hitting 93 on the gun. He is sure to get another start in Indy, particularly with the excellent starting pitching the Pirates have been getting.
