It was a rough outing for Brandon McCarthy in his bid to make the starting rotation. McCarthy allowed four runs before getting an out as the Indians pounded the Rangers 12-2. McCarthy, who didn't talk following his start, ended up pitching four innings and allowing five earned runs. He needed 78 pitches for those four innings, walking three and allowing five hits. Luis Mendoza, who is out of options, didn't help his bullpen cause by giving up four runs in his four innings.
The Rangers had eight hits, with Chris Davis and Ray Olmedo accounting for the RBI.
