Brandon McCarthy goes distance in defeat

Fixed delivery all the difference for Brandon McCarthy


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2013) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy took the mound Monday against San Diego believing he fixed a mechanical flaw in his delivery that has been causing his poor performances. He was far and away a different pitcher as he dominated the Padres for the win.

McCarthy was outstanding over seven innings and 93 pitches. He twirled a gem as he allowed just five base hits and one unearned run to score in the first inning on Yonder Alonso's fielder's choice that only scored a run due to Didi Gregorius' throwing error.

McCarthy did not walk a batter and struck out five to lower his ERA to 5.03. His record improved to 3-8 with the victory. McCarthy had lost his previous five times taking the mound for Arizona and had given up 11 runs over his last eight innings before he apparently fixed what was causing his troubles. McCarthy, with a new lease on life, gets another start for the Diamondbacks on Sunday against San Francisco.

Brandon McCarthy identifies mechanical flaw


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

McCarthy was struck by a line drive last season. He added that nearly being hit by a Shane Victorino ball August 4 may have screwed him up on the mound. 

McCarthy has a 5.44 ERA in 15 starts.

McCarthy had allowed four earned runs in 11 1/3 innings in his first two games back from the disabled list before getting hammered Wednesday. He goes into Monday's scheduled start against the Padres with a 5.44 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 55:18 K:BB ratio in 86 innings.
