Burnett fine after being hit by foul ball
KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Nationals left-hander Sean Burnett was scheduled to pitch two innings in Wednesday's 8-7 loss to the Astros, but he only pitched one after he was struck on the left knee by teammate Nyjer Morgan's foul ball in the first.

After he was through pitching, Burnett was seen with an ice wrap around the knee.

Burnett, who tossed a scoreless frame, said the knee is fine.
