Matt Garza's major league debut was a stinker. Those who watched him reported he was nervous.
Today, he is pitching against a Cleveland line-up that is 44% 2006 Buffalo Bison and 11% Tacoma Rainier! (Franklyn Guitierez, Andy Marte, Joe Inglet, Ryan Garko and Shin Choo.)
If Garza struggles once again, voices will begin to be heard about him not being ready and with those voices will be the diminishing Wild Card aspirations of Twins fans everywhere.
Through three and a third innings, Garza has given up 3 earned runs, 5 hits, 1 BB and 4 Ks.
A clear improvement over his first start but that doesn't say much.
