Analysis: Burnett (0-1, 2.73 ERA) took a four-hitter and a 2-1 lead into the seventh inning. But birthday boy Dee Gordon legged out a double to short right-center with one out, stole third and scored when pinch-hitter Justin Turner singled to left on Burnett's 105th and final pitch. Burnett's multihit game was his fifth in the majors - all on the road. The other four came with the Marlins, most recently on Sept. 25, 2005, against Atlanta's Jorge Sosa.
