Harang identifies mechanical flaw

ANAHEIM -- Aaron Harang believes he and pitching coach Rick Honeycutt figured out what led to his career-high eight walks Tuesday night in Oakland.

Harang said game video revealed a mechanical flaw in the way he separates his hands at the beginning of his windup.

"It's all about timing, and we worked on it in the bullpen yesterday," said Harang on Friday before the Dodgers opened a three-game set at Angel Stadium. "If I don't split my hands properly, my arm is late and my pitches are high, above the strike zone."

Harang starts again in Sunday's Freeway Series finale.
