Jaime Garcia is no road warrior

Last night, Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia pitched three innings and allowed seven hits and four runs at the Padres clobbered the Cards, 11-3. Garcia has not had a good season, standing now at 4-7 with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.469 WHIP.

But this season, Garcia has been particularly toxic on the road. He has pitched 48 innings at home and 48 innings on the road, after that there is no similarity between Garcia's performances at home and on the road.

If the Cardinals reach the postseason, you can be sure that Mike Methany will be adjusting his rotation to allow Garcia hear the hometown cheers.
