It was his first complete game since June 4, 2009. 

Harang struck out a season-high eight batters, while throwing 80 of his 122 pitches for strikes. He credited this approach with his success in the outing. 

“I’ve been working really hard with (pitching coach) Carl (Willis) to try and get things lined up and he’s looked at a lot of video. The big thing was coming out and pounding the strike zone and getting ahead in the count,” Harang said. “They’re an aggressive team they’re going to go out swinging and I was able to get them to put the ball into play within the first couple of pitches a few times and didn’t get into the count too much early on.”

Harang is now 2-5 on the season with a 6.51 ERA. His next start is scheduled for Saturday at Minnesota.

starting pitcher heads into Wednesday’s start against the Giants with an ugly 7.48 ERA in his first five starts. Although, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson seems to think McCarthy has been a bit unlucky and the numbers appear to back him up.

McCarthy has a .396 BABIP, which is more than 100 points higher t Bosman prospect Adam Lallana.The Liverpool midfielder, who signed for the Reds from Southampton in 2014, is out-of-contract this summer and is highly unlikely to sign a new deal at Anfield. Sky Sports says as a result, he is already allowed to talk han the league average (.294), per FanGraphs.com.

“He is throwing well, he had the best stuff he has had since joining us,” Gibson said of McCarthy’s outing last Friday, per .com. “But if you look at the difference a few plays make, it’s huge. But it’s part of baseball and he has to deal with it. In my mind, he understands what’s going on.”

Carpenter felt his left side tighten up on him during his seventh-inning at-bat against reliever Tony Watson. Carpenter, who was 1 for 4 with a run scored prior to leaving the game, was pulled as he came to bat in the ninth inning. He tried to downplay his injury following the loss.”Obviously, I’ve had some history and got hurt with it last year,” Carpenter told .com. “I think that was the main thing. They knew that I’ve had that injury before and they wanted to make sure it wasn’t too serious. It was more a precautionary move more than anything else.
