Matt Garza had a decent start, at times looking great, but was once again victimized by the long-ball (the wind howling out at 40 mph didn’t help). It’s been his story of the season – if you dig deep enough into his peripherals, you see a guy who’s pitching almost as well as he did last year, he’s just giving up a heck of a lot more home runs on his fly balls. Bad luck? Bad pitches? I tend to think it’s the former. Of course, tonight, it didn’t matter.
Starlin Castro was squaring up the ball, Alfonso Soriano was doing what he always does when he DH’s (*LOUD, INSTRUCTIVE COUGH*), Bryan LaHair took to right field like a powerful gazelle, and Geovany Soto returned to the lineup with a bang.
