Brandon McCarthy and two relievers throw four-hit shutout

KEY MOMENT: The Rockies had the tying runs on base with one out in the sixth inning and their best hitter, Troy Tulowitzki, at bat. Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy challenged Tulowitzki with fastballs — one clocked at 96 mph — and got him to ground into a double play on the seventh pitch of the...

Mr. & Mrs. McCarthy at the Dodgers' gala event the other night.Brandon McCarthy (1-0, 6.75) vs. Eddie Butler (1-0, 1.64) Curious fellow, this Brandon McCarthy: 6'7", funny guy, hot wife who's also pretty funny...and he's given up roughly one home run for every three strikeouts he records. McCarthy is second on the Dodgers' staff in strikeouts (19 to Kershaw's 26, and Clayton has pitched one more game), but leads in home runs allowed (6; Kershaw has given up 3). The longballs have to come down, of course, but of further curiosity is our front office's predilection for pitching reclamation...

Game 8 Thread: April 14 vs. Mariners, 7p

\ So good, he needs no stat line. David Huff (0-0, 0.00) vs. Hisashi Iwakuma (0-1, 6.00). Don't hassle the Huff, okay? He went 2-0 this spring, with either a 1.50 or a 1.32 ERA this spring, which either way sounds pretty good ($48M man Brandon McCarthy, might I remind you, has a 6.75 ERA). So what do we expect from Huff, 25-28 career, including a 1-0 record for the hated Giants (last year; after he was dealt by, and then returned to, the Yankees)? Besides, you wouldn't hit a man with glasses, right? Even one whose career ERA+ is 80, and whose career is most similar to players like...

McCarthy Was Terrible/Brilliant Last Night!

LA Times' Bill Shaikin breaks down Brandon McCarthy's pitching performance last night. I was at the game, and I viewed McCarthy as terrible and, well, lucky. Turns out he was good as well: The Dodgers' right-hander became the first pitcher in major league history to give up four home runs in a game in which he walked none and struck out at least 10. He ended the evening as the major league leader in home runs allowed -- and in strikeouts. In 12 innings this season, he has given up six home runs and struck out 19. Shaikin also notes that McCarthy has given up nine runs this season, eight on...

Oh yeah, Brandon McCarthy was pretty good in Dodgers' debut

Easily lost amid the Adrian Gonzalez home run outburst -- and if he was all that he would have figured out a way to hit one Thursday, the off-day -- was the Dodgers’ debut of right-hander Brandon McCarthy.

Brandon McCarthy (0-0, -.--) vs. Andrew Cashner (0-0, -.--) I say we quickly move on from last night's bunglefest, since reaction on Twitter today has been of the "Burn it all down! Season over!" variety. Speaking of Twitter, Brandon McCarthy, making his official Dodger debut, is quite the Twitterer... she cant see your jeans you dummy pic.twitter.com/9IGszNlQLi— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) March 25, 2015 He even Photoshopped his own avatar, seen above. Just look at that detail work. It's almost Sons-esque! Certainly, he deserves to win his debut for this masterpiece alone, don'tcha...

Brandon McCarthy's conditioning is tested in Dodgers' spring game

Brandon McCarthy watched from the bench Sunday as the Dodgers scored five runs in one inning and two in another. The more his team scored, the more he would have to wait to return to the mound.

Dodgers finally see the best of Brandon McCarthy

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Brandon McCarthy’s first few outings with the Los Angeles Dodgers were a tad rough. He had an 8.00 ERA when the Dodgers sent him down to a minor-league game last time to get his innings done and to shield him from a division opponent, the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was spring training, of course, so nobody was too worked up about it, but first impressions weren’t dazzling. But on Sunday they saw the pitcher they thought they were getting when they invested $48 million over four years back at the winter meetings.
