NATIONAL LEAGUE Marlins' Burnett blanks Nats 3-0

The free agent to be increased his value with trade deadline nearing.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI -- Making his final start before Sunday's trade deadline, A.J. Burnett pitched seven dominant innings to win his third start in a row and the Florida Marlins extended their winning streak to four games by beating the slumping Washington Nationals 3-0.

The Nationals have lost a season-high six consecutive games and 18 of 23.

Burnett (8-6) becomes a free agent after this season and has been the subject of trade speculation for more than a month. But with the Marlins in the thick of the playoff race, they may decide to keep the right-hander.

Burnett allowed four hits, including two infield singles, and struck out eight.

Guillermo Mota pitched a 1-2-3 eighth. Todd Jones followed with a perfect ninth for his 20th save in 22 chances and his fourth in four days.

A 50-minute rain delay after the second inning failed to faze either starting pitcher, and John Patterson (4-3) was almost as good as Burnett. Patterson limited Florida to five hits in six innings, but he threw wild pitches to help Paul Lo Duca score twice.

CHICAGO -- Arizona rookie Conor Jackson got his first two major league hits, including a go-ahead double in the eighth inning.

Making his first start in the majors, at first base, Jackson hit an RBI double to left in the eighth inning off Roberto Novoa (3-4) to score Troy Glaus and break a 2-all tie. He singled in the second inning for his first hit in his second at-bat.

Lance Cormier (7-1) replaced Michael Gosling with two men on and two outs in the sixth and walked Neifi Perez, who had doubled twice already, to load the bases. He struck out rookie Matt Murton to end the inning.

Greg Aquino pitched the final two innings for his first save of the year.

Troy Glaus hit his 21st homer to lead off the sixth against Rich Hill to tie the game.
