and the topps back:
burris started 28 games for the brew crew in 1985 and appeared in one other. he was 9-13 with a 4.81 era, which was considerably higher than the 3.15 era he had posted a year earlier in oakland. he did have a stretch of three straight complete games in august, although one of those complete games was of the 8-inning variety. after one year in milwaukee, burris was released and subsequently signed with the cardinals for the 1986 season. he finished his career by spending the latter half of the 1987 season in milwaukee.

voici à vous, 1985 ray burris!
