Freddy Garcia started poorly and ended poorly.

While he cruised from the second through the fourth and retired 11 straight in one point, Garcia could not put it all together and left with the Yankees trailing 5-3 in the sixth. He gave up five hits and two runs in the first, two runs and three hits in the fifth and a home run in the sixth. He could not protect a 3-2 lead his team gave him in the first.

While fellow starter Phil Hughes has struggled this year, his performances have come against Tampa Bay and Los Angeles, two teams likely destined for the playoffs. Garcia has now thrown up clunkers against Baltimore and Minnesota, two of the worst teams in the American League.
