Game 2010.114: Rays at Tigers
JV has been pretty average as of late. He has been going deep into games (8, 7, 7), but the numbers are not quite what we’ve come to expect. He is 1-2 with a 4.09 ERA and over his last three starts, with 16 Ks/8 BBs over 22 IPs. At the All-Star break I was hoping for 20 wins…now 15 seems like a stretch.
Garza followed up his no-hitter against Detroit with two more outstanding efforts. He gave up 4 ERs against the Yankees in 7 innings, but there had to be some bad luck involved there as he only gave up 5 hits and 1 BB against 9 Ks. Last Friday night he aced the Blue Jays, hurling 8 innings of shut-out ball and only allowing 4 hits. Garza’s WHIP over his last three games is .46…nasty.
