Jaime Garcia earned his seventh victory of the season on Wednesday, limiting the Padres to one run on six hits over his 5 2/3 innings of work.
The left-hander walked two and struck out four on the night. He held the Padres scoreless through the first five frames until surrendering a solo home run to Matt Kemp in the sixth. While he has remained healthy this season, he hasn't been quite as good as we have become accustomed to, registering a 3.98 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 93/40 K/BB ratio across 113 innings. He'll take on the Mets his next time out on Tuesday in New York. Jul 20 - 11:28 PM

Jaime Garcia gave up four runs in 6 1/3 innings but escaped with a no-decision against the Marlins on Friday.

He allowed eight hits and two walks while striking out two. The leaky outing leaves him at 6-6 with a 4.11 ERA and 1.36 WHIP after 18 starts. He will line up against the Padres at home on Wednesday.
Jul 16 - 12:52 AM

Jaime Garcia spun eight innings of one-run ball in Friday’s win over the Brewers.

It was quite a night for Garcia. His only mistake was a solo homer by Chris Carter in the second inning. Garcia walked four, but gave up just four hits and struck out six batters. He induced 15 swinging strikes and 16 ground balls in the victory. He also drove in a run with a single. This was his longest outing since his one-hit shutout against this same Brewers team on April 14. Garcia will bring a 3.84 ERA into a start against the Pirates next week at home.
Jul 1 - 11:17 PM

Jaime Garcia struggled in a no-decision against the Mariners on Sunday, surrendering five runs on 10 hits over his 5 2/3 innings.

The veteran southpaw walked two and struck out six in the ballgame. He allowed single runs in each of the first three innings, including a solo homer by Nelson Cruz. Garcia departed with two-men on in the sixth, each of whom rode home on a home run by Franklin Gutierrez. Garcia will look to get back on track and improve upon his 4.09 ERA and 1.38 WHIP when he does battle against the Brewers on Friday.
Jun 26 - 7:44 PM

Jaime Garcia pitched 6 2/3 innings of two-run ball in a victory over the Cubs on Monday.

Garcia struck out six and walked two in winning for the first time in four starts this month. Garcia's numbers have suffered some with the Cardinals sporting a weaker defense this year, but he's still an every-week start in mixed leagues while he's healthy.
Jun 20 - 11:31 PM

Jaime Garcia allowed four runs -- three earned -- on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Garcia didn't have his best stuff, but he battled to earn a quality start despite taking the loss. The southpaw struck out just two without walking a batter in the outing. Garcia remains winless in the month of June and 1-4 in his last six starts, leaving his overall record at 4-6. He'll carry a 3.93 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into Monday's start at the Cubs.
Jun 14 - 10:39 PM

Jaime Garcia allowed five runs on 13 hits over 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Reds.

It was easy to tell in the first inning that Garcia didn't have it, but the Cardinals had jumped out to a big early lead and then kept pouring on runs against the battered Cincinnati pitching staff, so manager Mike Matheny just stuck with his lefty starter. Garcia only walked one, but the Reds rattled off five extra-base hits against him, including two home runs. Garcia will try to get right before his next scheduled start Tuesday at home against the Astros.
Jun 8 - 10:37 PM

Jaime Garcia allowed two earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Brewers.

Both of those runs scored in a rough first inning for Garcia. He was able to settle in from there, but the Cardinals couldn't manage anything of substance against Brewers starter Zach Davies and fell 3-1 at Miller Park. Garcia gave up five hits and three walks while striking out three. He gets the Reds in Cincinnati next.
Jun 1 - 4:08 PM

Jaime Garcia yielded two runs over seven innings in Friday’s victory over the Nationals.

It was an encouraging showing after back-to-back shaky outings. Garcia allowed seven hits (including a solo homer by Danny Espinosa) and walked just one batter while notching four strikeouts. He evened up his record at 4-4 with the victory and holds a 3.47 ERA and 55/21 K/BB ratio in 59 2/3 innings over 10 starts. The southpaw will try to keep it going next week against the Brewers.
May 27 - 9:58 PM

Jaime Garcia was pounded for five earned runs in 2 1/3 innings Sunday as the Cardinals fell to the Diamondbacks.

Arizona took an aggressive approach to Garcia and it paid off for three runs in the first, one in the second, and another in third. Garcia yielded 10 hits and walked one while watching his ERA rise back above 3.00 (from 2.86 to 3.59). The crafty lefty will hope for better results next time out at Nationals Park.
May 22 - 5:10 PM

Jaime Garcia allowed three runs on five hits over five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

Garcia wasn't that bad -- all five of the Rockies' hits were singles -- but he wasn't that good, either, walking four while striking out just three. He would have gone deeper but Cardinals manager Mike Matheny lifted him for a pinch-hitter with a couple runners on in the fifth inning. Garcia dropped to 3-3 overall with the loss, owning a 2.86 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 51 strikeouts in 50 1/3 innings of work. A date with the Diamondbacks looms on Sunday.
May 17 - 11:14 PM

Jaime Garcia allowed just a pair of unearned runs over seven innings Wednesday in a victory over the Angels.

Garcia gave up a two-run homer to C.J. Cron in the fourth, but since a Matt Carpenter error had extended the inning, the runs were unearned. It's the second straight start in which Garcia has gone without allowing an earned run. He's sporting a 48/15 K/BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings.
May 12 - 1:41 AM

Jaime Garcia cruised through seven innings Thursday against the Phillies, allowing just two hits in the Cardinals' 4-0 win.

Garcia probably could have gone the distance in this one, but it was still just 2-0 with two on when his turn came up in the bottom of the seventh. The Cardinals hit for him and went on to add two more runs in the frame. Garcia had thrown a mere 82 pitches when he was lifted. He struck out five and walked none in lowering his ERA to 3.05.
May 5 - 4:45 PM

Jaime Garcia was dealt his second loss of the season on Saturday, surrendering four runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings against the Nationals.

Garcia racked up six strikeouts on the afternoon while walking three. All of the damage against him came in the very first inning, where Daniel Murphy delivered an RBI single and Jayson Werth followed with a three-run bomb. He settled in nicely afterwards and kept the Nats at bay the rest of the afternoon, but the damage had already been done. He'll carry a 3.73 ERA and 1.15 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Phillies.
Apr 30 - 5:23 PM

Jaime Garcia allowed two runs over five innings in a loss to the Cubs on Tuesday.

Garcia gave up four hits and walked four, and the (relatively) big blow was delivered by his counterpart, Jason Hammel, whose two-run single with two outs in the fourth inning ended up being the difference. Garcia struck out seven, giving him 26 strikeouts in 20 innings thus far. The southpaw will carry a 2.70 ERA and 0.90 WHIP into Monday's start at the Diamondbacks.
