Burnett will make just his second start for the Pirates tonight after taking that gruesome foul bunt off of the cheekbone in Spring Training. He really got roughed up pretty good in his rehab starts, but dazzled in his Pirates debut. He went seven innings and only gave up three hits and struck out seven batters. Burnett hasn't faced the Braves since June 29th, 2008 when he was with the Blue Jays.

While the Pirates generally struggle at the plate, Casey McGehee is hitting an impressive .429 with runners on base. Oddly enough, though, he has only three RBI to show for it in 22 plate appearances so far this season.
