I’m not saying there’s a causal relationship, but Matt Garza unnecessarily threw 119 pitches last time out. Tonight, he could get an out in the sixth inning, and ended up giving up six earned runs on seven hits and three walks over just five innings. It was ugly.
But not as ugly as the offense, which has now scored a whopping seven runs over the past four games (all losses). At least Marlon Byrd had a hit (and it was a legit, line-drive single!).
