Brandon McCarthy performs well in loss to Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Yankees right-hander Brandon McCarthy pitched well Saturday against Cleveland, but not well enough to match pitches with Indians hot starter Corey Kluber.

McCarthy yielded the first career homer to light-hitting Jose Ramirez in the second and finished with two runs and seven hits allowed in 6 1/3 innings. He walked none and fanned eight. He has surrendered just 12 earned runs in his last 49 1/3 innings pitched.

He is set to start again Friday at Tampa Bay.


Brandon McCarthy continues to excel in New York


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

McCarthy has posted a sterling 2.08 ERA over his first five starts with his new club. Overall, he owns a 4.37 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP over 23 starts (140 innings). His next start will come Saturday at home against the Indians.

McCarthy (6-10) has won three straight starts, but Tuesday's outing was his ugliest performance since joining the Yankees in early July. He owns a 4.56 ERA and 113:24 K:BB ratio in 134 1/3 innings. McCarthy is scheduled to face the Tigers Monday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

McCarthy has won back-to-back decisions with his new team, and has allowed only two earned runs over that 12-inning span. McCarthy will look to make it three consecutive wins in a rematch against the Rangers in Arlington on Tuesday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Brandon McCarthy earns no decision in first Yankees start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy gave up one earned run in his debut with the club Wednesday.

McCarthy found himself in some trouble early on. After Carlos Santana reached on an error, the Indians managed to drive in three runs. None of those runs were officially charged to McCarthy due to the error. McCarthy settled in after that, posted three straight scoreless innings before allowing another run in the fifth. 

McCarthy allowed four runs, one earned, on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings in his team debut. Josh Tomlin also gave up four runs, so McCarthy did not factor into the decision. It’s unclear where McCarthy will slot into the team’s rotation following the All-Star break.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Recently acquired right-hander Brandon McCarthy didn't take long to land with the Yankees. He has reported to the team and is scheduled to start Wednesday in Cleveland.

Offense backs Brandon McCarthy up for second straight win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy received plenty of rare offensive support Thursday, in a 10-2 win over the Pirates.

The Diamondbacks offense did not get going until the sixth inning, but they backed McCarthy up in a way that hasn't happened much this year. McCarthy fell one out shy of his second quality start in a row, as he ended up allowing two runs on eight hits and a pair of walks over 5 2/3 innings. He also struck out six batters on 100 pitches.

McCarthy improved his record to 3-10 in his second straight start. He also lowered his ERA to 5.01, and will try to extend his winning streak to three games when he takes on the Marlins Tuesday.  


Brandon McCarthy ends losing streak with second win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy ended his long losing streak Friday, in a 2-1 win over the Padres.

McCarthy won for the first time in 10 starts, and his last win also came against these Padres. He put together one of his best starts of the season Friday, allowing just one run on six hits over seven innings, while striking out seven batters and picking up 10 ground ball outs.

McCarthy  finally snapped his losing streak, improving his record to 2-10 in 17 starts. He still has a 5.11 ERA heading into his next start, set for Thursday in Pittsburgh.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Diamondbacks had to shuffle their rotation a bit Wednesday, after starter Josh Collmenter was used in relief during Tuesday's marathon win over the Indians.

Collmenter, who was scheduled to pitch Friday against the Padres, will instead be pushed back to start Saturday, reports MLB.com. That means Brandon McCarthy will take the mound Friday, though he still gets an extra day of rest thanks to two scheduled off days since his last start. 


Brandon McCarthy surrenders five runs in loss vs. Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy was stuck with a loss Saturday after giving up five earned runs on 10 hits and one walk in five innings and striking out two in his team's 6-4 defeat against the Giants.

McCarthy (1-10) continues to be very hittable despite posting strong strikeout-to-walk numbers this season. The Giants were able to score three runs in the top of the first inning and another in the second to put McCarthy in a quick hole from which he couldn't escape. He owns a 5.38 ERA and 80:18 K:BB ratio in 97 innings. McCarthy is slated to face the Padres Saturday, though the Diamondbacks may shuffle the rotation with two off-days next week.


Brandon McCarthy gets back on track in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Over his last three starts covering 19 1/3 innings, McCarthy has allowed 11 earned runs. He owns a 5.18 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP over 15 starts (92 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at home against San Francisco.

Brandon McCarthy falters late, loses yet again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Diamondbacks starter Brandon McCarthy tossed a quality start Friday against the Braves, but still saw his winless streak extended to six games in a 5-2 loss.

McCarthy limited the Braves to two runs through the first six innings of the game, and allowed just one more in the seventh inning, but that was the one that sunk him. He allowed his three runs on nine hits, while striking out nine batters and walking just one.

McCarthy is off to a 1-8 start in 13 starts, to go with a 5.13 ERA. He will look for better results in his next outing, Wednesday against the Astros.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy once again had nothing to show for a strong outing Wednesday, as the Diamondbacks fell 3-2 to the Cardinals in extra innings.

McCarthy tossed six strong innings in the outing, limiting the Cardinals to just one run. McCarthy struck out three batters and walked two before leaving after 99 pitches. He left the game in line for the win, but the bullpen couldn't hold on to the lead.

McCarthy is now just 1-6 on the season with a 4.67 ERA. He has allowed two or fewer runs in four of his last five starts, but has just one win to show for it. He will hope for better luck in his next outing, set for Monday against the Padres.


Brandon McCarthy goes eight strong, settles for no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy twirled his finest start of the season Wednesday against the Nationals, but got little help in a 5-1 loss.

McCarthy left the game in line for a no-decision, despite limiting the Nationals to just one run on a solo home run in eight innings of work. He allowed just two hits and did not walk a batter in the start, while striking out seven in the no-decision.

McCarthy is now 1-6 through nine starts with a 5.01 ERA, though he has allowed three or fewer runs in five of his last six starts. McCarthy will try to get back on track in his next start, set for Tuesday against the Cardinals. 


Brandon McCarthy still stinging after debacle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who's 1-6 with a 5.66 ERA, said he's had a hard time putting Friday's performance behind him, reports MLB.com. He retired the first nine White Sox batters before allowing Chicago to score seven runs in the fourth inning. Nine of the first 10 men up in the inning hit safely.

"Usually about 15 minutes," McCarthy said when asked how long he dwells on a tough outing. "That's one of the things I do well is move on from things quickly. This one has hung around for a little while just because it was so perplexing.

"It will be something by the time I wake up tomorrow it's time to go back to work. Enough time separates it and you break on from it and then it just becomes a new start you're getting ready for. But that one lingered for a little while because it was so hard for me to explain," he added. "Usually I'm not searching for answers, it's just something that I know what I need to work on. That one, I don't know what that was, but it's hung a little bit longer."

McCarthy will try to bounce back Wednesday against the Nationals.


Brandon McCarthy frustrated after rough fourth inning


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) Diamondbacks starter Brandon McCarthy is frustrated with his fourth inning performance Friday, according to MLB.com.

McCarthy was at a loss for words when asked how the White Sox pounded him for seven runs after he had set them down at the start of the game. "Even looking back on it, they're not terrible pitches," McCarthy said. "They're not anything different than what I was doing in the first three innings. The same approach, it's just, I don't know."

McCarthy has been throwing with more velocity this year, and has shown strong strikeout and walk rates, but has had trouble in the early going. Through 47 2/3 innings, he has a 5.66 ERA.
