Braves' Brandon McCarthy: Sets season high in strikeouts against Cubs
McCarthy struck out eight and held the Cubs to just one run on five hits and two walks through six innings but was stuck with a no-decision Wednesday night.
McCarthy rebounded from a pair of stinkers his last two times out against Miami and San Francisco in which he allowed a combined 14 runs on 23 hits over just 8.1 innings. This time, facing one of the best offenses in the National League, McCarthy set a season high in strikeouts and fired his first quality start since his second time out, all the way back on April 6 against the Rockies. McCarthy still owns a 5.05 ERA, but he'll try to keep things trending in the right direction his next time out Monday against the Phillies.
