Mike Burns

[9:55pm, June 2, 2009]

Mike Burns pitched in his first Milwaukee Brewers game tonight and did a splendid job. Para was rocked in the first four innings with ten runs (11 hits). Mike Burns came in for relief in the 5th and worked four complete innings. Burns only yielded four hits and surrendered no runs! Walked two, struck-out four. Way to go Mike!

Statement from

Mike Burns has been the most reliable and game-changing pitcher this season for Nashville, taking nothing away from Dillard. His first seven outings yielded superb performances, including three shutouts.

Mike is in his 10th professional season. The Brewers are his 5th organization. He was signed by the Brewers on January 15, 2009.

He spent the entire 2008 season with the Iowa Cubs, where he went 8-12 with a 4.67 ERA. In 133 innings pitched he gave up 69 earned runs. He was mainly a reliever last year, pitching in 37 games, starting 14.

The 30 year old righty from California is having a break-out season as a starter for Nashville.

Burns has a Major League record of 0-0 with a 5.88 ERA (34er/52ip) in 45 major league appearances with the Astros, Reds, and Red Sox.
