The trade for Brandon McCarthy continues to pay dividends for the New York Yankees.
On Monday night McCarthy allowed just one unearned run in 5 2/3 innings of work against the Detroit Tigers.
The win against the Tigers moves him to 4-0 since his trade to the Yankees. In five starts with the team he owns a 2.08 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 30 1/3 innings of work.
McCarthy had thrown 116 pitches in this contest explaining his reason for not pitching deeper into the game. That pitch total is his most since 2009.
