Astros' Luis Garcia: Mediocre in win
Garcia (10-8) allowed three earned runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four across five innings to earn the win Thursday against the White Sox.
Garcia was gifted 10 runs of support from the Astros offense to earn his 10th win of the season. However, he was only mediocre and has now allowed three or more runs in five consecutive starts -- good for a 5.46 ERA in that span. The outing also inflated Garcia's ERA to 4.09 on the campaign, though he still has an impressive 127:39 K:BB across 123.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Tagged for four runs in win
Garcia (9-8) gave up four earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six over six-plus innings to earn the win in a 7-5 victory over the Athletics on Friday.
Garcia came into the game coming off three straight losses, but he did enough against the Athletics to regain a winning record. One of the four earned runs he surrendered came on a balk with the bases loaded. Garcia had spontaneously modified his elaborate windup and was called for the violation by the third base umpire. He was also responsible for two more runs, which came in to score after he was pulled at 97 pitches with two runners on and nobody out in the seventh. Garcia has an ERA of 5.16 over his past five starts. The 25-year-old right-hander will look to right the ship in his next expected outing at the White Sox next week.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Gives up four in loss
Garcia (8-8) gave up four earned runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out five over six innings to take the loss in a 4-1 defeat to the Guardians on Saturday.
All of the trouble came in the first two innings for Garcia, as he gave up four runs before getting six outs. The 25-year-old right-hander then settled into a groove by striking out the side in the third and making it through six without giving up another run. Garcia's ERA has been drifting higher ever since June, and it is now up to 3.93 after he was handed his eighth loss of the season. Garcia will look to reverse this trend in a favorable matchup next week at home against the Athletics.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Takes another loss Monday
Garcia (8-7) allowed three runs on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts in seven innings, taking the loss Monday versus the Red Sox.
Garcia had particular trouble with Jarren Duran in this outing -- the Red Sox outfielder plated one with a ground rule double in the third inning and added a two-run home run in the fifth. The Astros' offense wasn't able to overcome that damage, leaving Garcia with his second straight loss. With Jake Odorizzi traded to Atlanta, Garcia gained some job security in the rotation despite having allowed 15 runs in 30 innings across his last five starts. The 25-year-old right-hander has a 3.81 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 112:32 K:BB in 106.1 innings through 19 starts this year. He's tentatively projected for a road start in Cleveland this weekend....

Astros' Luis Garcia: Gives up grand slam in loss
Garcia (8-6) allowed four runs on four hits and four walks while striking out seven in 5.2 innings, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Athletics.
Five of the eight baserunners Garcia allowed came in the third inning, and Chad Pinder tagged him for a grand slam in that frame. This was the 17th homer allowed by Garcia in 18 starts this year -- he allowed 19 long balls in 30 outings last year. Despite the extra trouble with homers, the right-hander has a solid 3.81 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 107:31 K:BB through 99.1 innings this year. He's tentatively on track for a home start versus the slumping Red Sox next week, though it's possible Garcia moves up a day if Jake Odorizzi (finger) can't make his next scheduled start versus Seattle....

Astros' Luis Garcia: Racks up eighth win
Garcia (8-5) allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six across five innings to earn the win in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees.
Garcia was touched up for a two-run home run by Gleyber Torres but was otherwise able to hold the Yankees' offense in check. Garcia got 13 of his 15 outs via groundballs and strikeouts to turn in his second consecutive quality start. Though he's surrendered five earned runs twice in his last seven outings, Garcia has allowed two or fewer earned runs four times in that same span. For the season, the right-hander owns a 3.65 ERA and a 100:27 K:BB across 93.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Excellent in no-decision
Garcia allowed a run on one hit and three walks while striking out seven over six innings in a no-decision versus the Angels on Tuesday.
Garcia probably deserved a win Tuesday, but Phil Maton and Rafael Montero allowed the Angels to pull even in the seventh inning. With the no-decision, Garcia's four-start win streak came to an end despite a quality start in one of his best outings of the season. The right-hander has a 3.65 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 94:25 K:BB through 88.2 innings in 16 outings overall. With the Astros currently using a six-man rotation, this was likely Garcia's last start before the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Yields five runs in win
Garcia (7-5) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in 6.1 innings, earning the win Tuesday over the Royals.
Garcia yielded a pair of home runs in the contest, making this the fourth time he's allowed multiple homers in a start this year. The five runs against also matched a season high. Despite the shaky pitching, he threw only 88 pitches (61 strikes), making this a fairly efficient start compared to the 101 pitches he threw in 5.1 innings versus the Yankees last week. Garcia saw his ERA tick up to 3.81 with a 1.09 WHIP and 87:22 K:BB across 82.2 innings overall. He's projected for a road start versus the Angels next week, which may be his final start of the first half if the Astros stick with a six-man rotation.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Earns sixth win
Garcia (6-5) allowed one earned run on three hits and two walks while striking out six across 5.1 innings to earn the win Thursday against the Yankees.
Garcia threw a season-high 101 pitches and impressively shut down one of the most dangerous lineups in the league. The lone run against him came on a solo home run by Anthony Rizzo, but he otherwise limited the Yankees to a pair of singles. Garcia has maintained an impressive 35:7 K:BB across his last six starts, and he has earned the win in each of his last three outings. Overall, he has a 3.54 ERA across 76.1 innings on the season....

Astros' Luis Garcia: Robbed of two-start week
The Astros elected to push Garcia back in their pitching schedule, with the right-hander now in line to make his next start Thursday against the Yankees in Houston rather than Tuesday against the Mets in New York, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Though Garcia will be trading a road start for a home start, fantasy managers likely would have preferred that the 25-year-old stayed on the schedule for Tuesday, as he would have lined up for a two-start week. The two step is now likely to fall to Framber Valdez, who will take the hill for the series opener versus the Mets.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Secures fifth victory
Garcia (5-5) earned the win Wednesday against the Mets after giving up three runs on six hits with five strikeouts and one walk over five innings.
The 25-year-old held New York to one run through five frames, but he returned for the sixth inning and was lifted after allowing the first three batters to reach base, two of which came around to score. Despite the late struggles, it was another solid outing for Garcia, who has a 14:1 K:BB while picking up wins in each of his past two outings. The right-hander tentatively lines up for a rematch with the Mets on the road next week.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Easily nabs fourth win
Garcia improved his record to 4-5 after giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits and no walks while striking out nine Wednesday in the Astros' 9-2 win over the Rangers.
Garcia's only earned run came on a solo home run by Corey Seager, though he committed the error responsible for his unearned run. Garcia recorded nine strikeouts for the third time this season, and he backed that with an impressive 19 swinging strikes on 92 total pitches. Four of those swings and misses came in the bottom of the second, when he threw nine strikes to retire the side in what went down as the 107th immaculate inning in MLB history. Houston reliever Phil Maton also struck out the side on nine pitches in the seventh to allow him and Garcia to become the first teammates in league history to toss immaculate innings in the same game....

Astros' Luis Garcia: Hammered by Marlins
Garcia (3-5) took the loss Friday as the Astros were downed 7-4 by the Marlins, coughing up five runs on five hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out seven.
The whiffs helped salvage some fantasy value, but this was still Garcia's worst start of the year and his fourth loss in his last five outings. The 25-year-old has a 4.44 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 23:9 K:BB through 26.1 innings over that stretch, but his biggest issue has been keeping the ball in the yard -- he's served up six homers in those five starts for a 2.1 HR/9....

Astros' Luis Garcia: Goes seven innings in loss
Garcia (3-4) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk with two strikeouts in seven innings, taking the loss Saturday versus the Royals.
Garcia was out-dueled by Kris Bubic, and the Astros' offense mustered just five hits and five walks in the contest. Despite taking his third loss in his last four starts, Garcia has logged quality starts in consecutive outings for the second time this year. He's pitched to a strong 3.07 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 53:16 K:BB across 55.2 innings in 10 appearances. The 25-year-old is projected for a favorable home start versus the Marlins next week....

Astros' Luis Garcia: Quality start in no-decision
Garcia allowed a run on four hits and a walk with six strikeouts in six innings in a no-decision versus the Mariners on Sunday.
Garcia hadn't completed six innings in any of his last three starts, so this was an encouraging bounce-back outing after a couple of losses. The Astros' offense didn't supply enough offense to earn him a win, as the 25-year-old gave up a game-tying RBI single to Ty France in the sixth inning. It's been a solid year overall for Garcia, who owns a 3.14 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 51:15 K:BB in 48.2 innings across nine starts. He'll carry a 3-3 record into a road start in Kansas City next weekend....

Astros' Luis Garcia: Suffers second straight loss
Garcia (3-3) was tagged with the loss Monday after he pitched five innings, giving up four runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out four against the Guardians.
Garcia gave up two runs in the top of the third after committing a throwing error and then later surrendered a two-run homer to Jose Ramirez in the fifth frame. It was his second consecutive loss, and he has now surrendered five earned runs over nine innings in his last two starts after allowing just three runs over 18 frames in his prior three outings. The two-game hiccup has raised his ERA from 2.94 to a still strong 3.38 over 42.2 innings in 2022. Garcia has struggled with the long ball this season, allowing seven of them over eight starts and posting a 1.48 HR/9. He'll look to get back in the win column in his next outing, which tentatively lines up vs. the Mariners on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Short outing against Boston
Garcia (3-2) allowed five runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out four across four innings to take the loss Wednesday against Boston.
Garcia was harmed by his defense, which committed two errors behind him. However, he also didn't have his best stuff as he surrendered three extra-base hits -- including a home run to Xander Bogaerts -- across his four frames. Garcia had been excellent prior to this outing, as he had allowed only three earned runs across 18 frames while tallying a 23:5 K:BB in three starts. He still owns a strong 3.35 ERA for the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Luis Garcia: Nine strikeouts in win
Garcia (3-1) earned the win and struck out nine in five scoreless innings Thursday, allowing five hits and two walks in a 5-0 victory in Minnesota.
Garcia allowed at least one baserunner in each inning but held the Twins scoreless in large part due to his nine punchouts. Even though it was his second-shortest start of the season, his 95 pitches thrown were a season-high. The 25-year-old has recorded exactly nine strikeouts and two walks in consecutive games and has a 37:9 K:BB for the season. Through six starts he has an excellent 2.94 ERA and 0.95 WHIP....
