Dodgers Blanked by A's

Posted Jun 20, 2012

Aaron Harang recorded just 11 outs while surrendering 8 walks. The offense couldn't pick him up, as Brandon McCarthy overwhelmed Dodger bats.

Brandon McCarthy showed no signs of an ailing shoulder in seven impressive innings, winning his third straight start and sixth consecutive decision to lead the Oakland Athletics past the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Tuesday night.

Seth Smith and Jonny Gomes each hit RBI singles, and Coco Crisp reached four times and stole three bases as the A's beat the NL West-leading club that began the day with baseball's best record.

McCarthy (6-3) outpitched former A's starter Aaron Harang (5-4), who couldn't overcome a career-high eight walks and his 40-pitch first inning. Harang, traded by Texas to the A's in November 2000, made his major league debut in the Oakland Coliseum on May 25, 2002.
