Dodgers pull Brandon McCarthy (blister) after four innings
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy (blister) was removed from his start on Thursday after throwing just four innings due to a blister.
McCarthy threw 85 pitches, allowing two runs on seven hits before being replaced by a pinch-hitter in the top of the fifth. The Dodgers are hopeful the blister won't cost him next week's start against the Washington Nationals.
McCarthy fell to 5-2 on the year. He owns a 3.38 ERA with a 47/13 strikeout to walk ratio in 50 2/3 innings pitched.
