One-hitter for A.J. Burnett

by Bill Chuck on August 1, 2012

With two outs in the 8th inning, Cubs pinch-hitter Adrian Cardenas lined a 3-2 pitch to right for a single and A.J. Burnett had to settle for a one-hitter and the Cubbies extended their streak of 7,441 games without being no-hit, as the Bucs won 5-0 thanks to Neil Walker‘s five RBI.

This was the Pirates 27th one-hitter since 1918:
