Burnett breaks own Wild Pitch record
North Little Rock, AR native A.J. Burnett threw 3 wild pitches on Friday, August 26th in the New York Yankees 5-12 loss. In doing so, his 2011 wild pitch total went from 17 to 20, effectively breaking his own single-season record for wild pitches among Arkansans.
Burnett has now broken his own wild pitch record twice. He originally set the bar in 2002 with 14, moving it up to 17 in 2009 before setting it again on Friday.
