Burnett had just picked up his 14th loss of the season, as the veteran righty was smacked around by the Mariners, allowing all five runs in the Phillies' 5-2 loss.
Perhaps it was just his frustration surfacing after pitching 7 2/3 innings on Tuesday night. Who could blame him?
It's been a frustrating season for the Phillies as a whole, and things just continue to get worse.
The Mariners wasted no time jumping on the Phillies Tuesday night, scoring two runs in the first inning. They would add one more in the sixth on a solo home run by Kyle Seager, increasing their lead to 3-0.
Burnett would finally be knocked from the game in the eighth after allowing a two-run single to stretch the Mariners' lead to 5-0.
The Phillies would finally get on the board in the ninth, scoring two runs, but it would be too little too late, as they fell to the Mariners 5-2 to continue their terrible season.
