Brandon McCarthy's final pitching line tonight against the Oakland Athletics, in a pretty important divisional game at home:
1 IP, 6 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 1 K
Through four starts, he has a 10.20 ERA with a WHIP over 2.00.
The Athletics lead 8-0 after 2 1/2 innings.
There's no way around it: this team is playing absolutely terrible right now. If it's not the hitting killing the team, it's the pitching. Tonight, it very well could be both.
