(AP) — A.J. Burnett is in position to match the longest winning streak of his career. His current string of winning starts began with a victory over the Detroit Tigers.

The right-hander tries to win his seventh consecutive start Friday night when the Pittsburgh Pirates face the surging Tigers at PNC Park.

Burnett (7-2, 3.52 ERA) is 6-0 with a 2.19 ERA in eight starts – all Pittsburgh (36-32) victories – since losing at St. Louis on May 2. He’s posted a 2.17 ERA while winning six straight starts for the first time since July 23-Aug. 19, 2008, with Toronto.

In his most recent outing Saturday, Burnett allowed two solo homers in 6 2-3 innings of a 9-2 win at Cleveland.
