AJ Burnett returned from the disabled list to start for Pittsburgh on Sunday, and his Pirates teammates welcomed him back with a familiar prank.
Burnett went to the rosin bag after walking Chicago Cubs catcher Welington Castillo in the fourth, and the bag opened up on him. Burnett threw up two fingers at his teammates in the dugout to say, “You’ve got me twice with that prank!”
Luckily the prank didn’t bother Burnett, who struck out Brian Bogusevic to end the inning. He went five innings allowing three hits, two walks, and two runs in a 4-3 loss in extras to the Cubs. The Pirates are tied with the Cardinals for the best record in baseball. Burnett leads the league with two busted bags.Google+
