Chicago brought 2 runs across the plate in the 4th inning. Chicago managed only 4 hits on the night. It was the 2nd shutout of the year for Burns(8-11). Todd Crane(9-6) was hit with the loss. He gave up 3 runs and 4 hits in 8 innings.
Sparky Anderson was obviously impressed with the pitching of Burns, 'That guy made us look a little silly out there tonight. We just couldn't get to him at all - everything was working for him. I just hope that he got that kinda performance out of his system.'
