Burnett picked up the rosin bag as he was circling the mound and tried to tap it against his body, however it instead exploded to a burst of white powder, surprising the pitcher.

“If so, it was a pretty good one,” Burnett said. “That’s my day: One (bad) pitch (for a two-run homer by Anthony Rizzo) and the rosin bag.”

In the first Opening Day start of his career, Burnett gave up three runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings and struck out 10 batters, however took the loss as the Pirates fell 3-1.
