GAME 157: Brandon McCarthy was not on top of his game tonight as the O’s managed to get a hit in every inning. In rare outing where his command was shaky, McCarthy allowed 5 earned runs in 5.1 innings, including three home runs. Former Yankee Kelly Johnson would hit one of them in the second reminding the Yankees that he still has it.
Here’s the box score and recap.
