I’m not sure who was hit harder or who played worse Friday night–Matt Garza or the Chicago Blackhawks?
After two less-than-par outings from Garza it was time for the right-hander to perform up to standards. Instead, we got more of the same in a 5-0 drubbing against the red-hot Rockies.
In six innings Garza continuously worked behind in the count, threw a ton of pitches (119) and couldn’t escape one lousy inning that cost him the game.
Of course, there are plenty of excuses…Denver is a pitcher’s nightmare, the weather felt more like January than April and Colorado entered the game winners of six straight.
But under the same pitchnig conditions Jhoulys Chacin tossed his first career complete game shutout. What gives, Matt?
