McNamee says some items in beer can didn't come from injecting Clemens
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Brian McNamee says some of the medical evidence he saved in a beer can was not used on baseball pitcher Roger Clemens.
McNamee is the main prosecution witness in the case against Clemens, who's accused of lying to Congress when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs. McNamee testified this week that he injected the seven-time Cy Young Award winner with steroids and human growth hormone.
McNamee has said he stored medical evidence from shooting Clemens with steroids in 2001. But under cross-examination, he acknowledged that some of the items were not in fact used on Clemens, such as a needle to inject human growth hormone.
McNamee, Clemens' former strength and conditioning coach, also testified that a pin included in the beer can might not have been used on Clemens. He said it was either used on Clemens or another player, whom he did not name.
